This book puts the short story at the heart of contemporary postcolonial studies and questions what postcolonial literary criticism may be. Focusing on short fiction between 1975 and today â the period in which critical theory came to determine postcolonial studies â it argues for a sophisticated critique exemplified by the ambiguity of the form.
