Exile in Global Literature and Culture: Homes Found and Lost

'This formidable collection chronicles our ongoing displacements and, by asking where we are going and why, makes us reflect on who we are and who we dream of being. In these times of global upheaval, this book is essential reading.'

-Alberto Manguel, author, critic and intellectual. 

'Exile in Global Literature and Culture is a deeply thoughtful collection of pieces by scholars, writers, and artists, whose first-hand and more distanced accounts of exile eloquently speak to the geographical and psychological condition of the dispossessed, the uprooted, and the displaced and to the generational impact and inheritance of a legacy of exile. Together these chapters are a register of loss but also a testament to recovery, endurance, and return, a stunning tribute to the ability to negotiate disparate worlds.'

-Victoria Aarons, O.R. and Eva Mitchell Distinguished Professor of Literature at Trinity University in San Antonio Texas. 

'An important and timely book that will resonate with readers around the globe.'

-Ruth Behar, thinker, poet and Victor Haim Perera Collegiate Professor of Anthropology at the University of Michigan.
