New strangers in paradise : the immigrant experience and contemporary American fiction by Gilbert H Muller( )

13 editions published between 1999 and 2015 in English and held by 1,573 WorldCat member libraries worldwide

"Examining the groups of immigrants in the cultural and historical context both of America and of the lands from which they originated, Muller argues that this "fourth wave" of immigration has led to a creative flowering in modern fiction. The book offers a fresh perspective on the writings of Vladimir Nabokov, Saul Bellow, William Styron, Maxine Hong Kingston, Amy Tan, Oscar Hijuelos, Jamaica Kincaid, Bharati Mukherjee, Rudolfo Anaya, and many others. These writers, Muller claims, are nation builders who have transformed and continue to change our national mythology as well as the literary canon."--Jacket
