Synopsis : Looking closely at a group of writers who rejected the industrial West in favor of the expatriate life and made that quest the subject of their work, Marilynn Papayanis reveals their concerns to be ethical as well as aesthetic. Her book brims with fresh insights into such works as Paul Bowles's "The Sheltering Sky," Lawrence Durrell's "The Alexandria Quartet," and Michael Ondaatjes "The English Patient."

Critique: "This is a brilliantly conceived project. Marilyn Papayanis has identified an important lacuna in post-colonial theory's representation of the politics and poetics of otherness. Her deployment of Bowles, Lawrence, Durrell, Ondaatje, and DeLillo's writings to address colonial discourse analysis' neglect of the significance of the figure of the expatriate is both persuasive and timely while her attempt to produce a coherent narrative of 'the relational arts of the self' demonstrates both pizzazz and imagination. This work should stimulate a renewed exploration of the ethics of imagining otherness." - Asha Varadharajan Queen's University, Canada; "This book offers a wonderful mix of genres that usually don't go together - expatriate fiction and travel writing, as well as biography... [Papayanis's] range of interests is far more political and theoretical than the older generation of biographical critics of expatriation, and the fact that she includes for study writers who also practiced travel writing expands the scope of the study very usefully." - Brian Kiteley"
