Migration and Literature offers a thorough and thought provoking examination of the thematic and formal role of migration in four contemporary and canonized novelists, Günter Grass, Milan Kundera, Salman Rushdie, and Jan Kjærstad. This book examines how these novelists reflect, problematize, and “resolve” the problems set by the migratory world and analyzes how the novels employ discursive strategies which emphasize their migratory and homeless form.
