"Postcolonial London" explores the imaginative transformation of London by African, Asian, Caribbean and South Pacific writers since the 1950s.
Engaging with a range of writers from Sam Selvon and Doris Lessing to Hanif Kureishi and Fred D'Aguiar, John McLeod examines a cultural history of resistance to the prejudice and racism that have at least in part characterised the postcolonial city. This resistance, he argues, bears witness to the determination, imagination and creativity of London's migrants and their descendants.
McLeod's superb study is essential reading for those interested in British or postcolonial literature, or in theorisations of the city and metropolitan culture.
