Using three literary analyses to show what happens once we leave behind the theoretical poverty of celebratory readings of contemporary migration and hybridity literature, this book offers a way out of the theoretical deadlock of putting hybridity against purity or flux against fixity.

'The application of these migration and hybridity discourses in Bharati Mukherjee's Jasmine, Jamal Mahjoub's The Carrier and V.S. Naipaul's The Enigma of Arrival adds to the academic worth of the volume. Discursive notes to the chapters, an almost exhaustive bibilography on the subject and the brilliantly executed and meticulous index make it a gem of literary criticism.' - Routledge ABES June 2011
