Contents:
Introduction: the spatial aesthetics of transnationalism and transligualism -- Double visions and aesthetics of the migratory: Aleksandar Hemon's Lazarus project -- Cohesive fragments: G.B. Trans's graphic memoir Vietnamerica: a family's journey -- Shape shifting and the shifting of shapes: migration and transformation in Junot Diaz's Brief wondrous life of Oscar Wao -- "Weathering the divide between there and here": in-between spaces in Boris Fishman's A replacement life -- Translation and transcreation in Vikram Chandra's Red earth and pouring rain.
Summary: "In American Migrant Fictions: Space, Narrative, Identity, Sonia Weiner focuses on novels of five American migrant writers of the late twentieth and early twenty-first centuries, who construct spatial paradigms within their narratives to explore questions of linguistic diversity, identities and be-longings. By weaving visual techniques within their narratives (photography, comics, cartography) authors Aleksandar Hemon, G.B. Tran, Junot Díaz, Boris Fishman and Vikram Chandra convey a surplus of perspectives and gesture towards alternative spaces, spatial in-between-ness and transnational space." --
