Satire plays a prominent and often controversial role in postcolonial fiction. Satire and the Postcolonial Novel offers the first study of this topic, employing the insights of postcolonial comparative theories to revisit Western formulations of "satire" and the "satiric."
'Satire and the Postcolonial Novel makes an important and highly original contribution to the field of postcolonial studies, for it offers the first sustained critique of satire in comparative postcolonial literature.' - English Studies in Canada (ESC)
