Summary

This book is a study of the representation of the global, postcolonial, hybrid city by women writers in English. Focusing specifically on London, Toronto and Singapore as examples of different positions in the postcolonial process, Suarez grounds her discussion on theories of the global city, urban representation and postcolonial, diaspora and gender theories. The study includes close analysis of works by writers such as Jackie Kay and Andrea Levy (UK), Janice Kulyk Keefer and Dionne Brand (Canada) and Hsu-Ming Teo and Simone Lazaroo (Singapore-Australia route), to examine how they share a representation of women as active agents in generating the hybrid city, although often at the cost of exclusion. Examining the literature of these popular writers alongside the gendering of theories on ethnicity, diaspora, post/colonialism and multiculturalism this book is an exciting and timely intervention in postcolonial studies and its relation to gender and the city.
