Nowhere has Western public distrust towards Islam been as strong as in the Netherlands. This book provides a thorough discussion of Dutch multicultural society seen through the lens of literature. The literary work of four important contemporary writers – Kader Abdolah, Robert Anker, Abdelkader Benali and Hafid Bouazza – is analysed alongside the public debate about the encounter between Islam and the West. The author sketches the cultural matrix from which these texts stem and in which they intervene in a specifically literary way. This study makes available a host of data on Dutch literature and public debate and will be indispensable for scholars of contemporary Dutch culture.
