Nabokov, Rushdie, and the Transnational Imagination argues that exiled and migrant novelists create alternate worlds which teach their readers to construct new, nation-like communities. Taking Vladimir Nabokov and Salman Rushdie as model practitioners, this book shows how such writers are remaking national literary traditions. These playful, puzzle-filled texts transcend classification as postcolonial or postmodern; instead, they help identify and create a lineage of boundary-crossing, and test how far the real world can be changed by fiction.
