Abstract

The preoccupation with the nation that marks much postcolonial writing, especially the Anglophone novel in India following the appearance of Salman Rushdie's Midnight's Children, has been widely remarked. In this essay I am interested in tracing how this interest in the nation-thematic has persisted into or changed in the course of the first decade of the new century in the fiction (and prose non-fiction) that has appeared since the 1980s, in response to both socio-political developments (local and global) as well as changing literary trends.
