1 Meenakshi Mukherjee
Elusive Terrain: Culture and Literary Memory
Oxford University Press; New Delhi, India; 2008; 019569208X / 9780195692082; First Edition; Hard Cover; New; New; 
Various strands exist in the tangled texture of our plural existence—language, translation, religion, politics, gender, caste, community, films, migration, and nostalgia for a lost home. Elusive Terrain weaves them together in thirteen essays addressing diverse issues pertaining to literature and culture in modern India. ‘Locality of Culture’, the first section, examines a few of these strands in the context of the present and looks at literary debates that cut across regional barriers in India. The essays in the second section, ‘Uses of the Past’, go back in time to inquire into aspects of religion, the construction of the nation, and forming of community identities that constitute our past. The concerns reflected in the volume are too elusive to be neatly labelled. Though written at different times, the essays are linked by the point of view of a bilingual Indian reader. Bypassing global categories like ‘postcolonial’ or ‘postmodern’ they look at the way ideas travel across language and region, and how cultural memory is selectively retrieved. 021615

The Nation Across the World: Postcolonial Literary Representations
Oxford University Press; New Delhi, India; 2007; 0195690249 / 9780195690248; First Edition; Hardcover; New; New; 
The Nation across the World examines the present state of the Nation in a variety of political formations and cultural locations around the world—from smaller but no less complex nations such as Fiji, Singapore, and Trinidad, to larger former colonies such as Australia, India, Sri Lanka, and South Africa, to former colonial powers such as Britain and Spain, and the one supernation of our day, the USA. In the process, a wide range of issues are explored, including colonialism, empire, race, language, ethnicity, resistance and rebellion, liberation, national self-fashioning and identity, and postcolonial migration and hybridity. The Nation is situated in relation to the sub-national and the local on the one hand and to cosmopolitan internationalism and world movements on the other. The book offers discussions not only of literary texts and intertexts but also of other cultural forms including stage performances, films, and the game of cricket. The nineteen contributors to this volume have themselves lived and worked in many countries and come from all over the globe. They include the novelists Vikram Seth and Austin Clarke, and a group of internationally distinguished academics including Homi Bhabha. 026126

6 Lokenath Bhattacharya; Translated from Bengali By Meenakshi Mukherjee
The Virgin Fish of Babughat (Babughatter Kumari Mach)
Oxford University Press; New Delhi, India; 2003; 0195665775 / 9780195665772; First Edition; Paperback; New; 
The Virgin Fish of Babughat is written in the form of a diary kept by an inmate of a very unusual prison. Filling up blank sheets of paper is part of his punishment, and his desperate attempt to hold on to a language that is slipping away from him gives these pages a strange intensity and vividness. The novel is as much a political allegory as a parable of a world about to be taken over by consumerist culture. The prison camp tries to turn men and women into mindless carnal creatures devoid of individual identity and human values. The title of the novel is a reminder of the reduction of female flesh to the level of a commodity the tastiest fish are those that have not spawned, and so are the women who have never been pregnant.Yet it is not a dystopic novel, because, in a low key manner, it also celebrates the ultimate indestructibility of love and the desire for freedom. Written three years before the Emergency was declared in India, The Virgin Fish of Babughat anticipat es the chilling possibilities of power without accountability, and critiques the complicity of ordinary citizens in creating such a situation.
