From nation to diaspora Samuel Selvon, George Lamming and the cultural performance of gender by Curdella Forbes ( )
13 editions published in 2005 in English and held by 993 WorldCat member libraries worldwide
This book is the first comprehensive treatment of gender in the fictions of Samuel Selvon and George Lamming, two West Indian writers who are rarely analysed together. It demystifies discourses of creolization and nationalism, showing that these have masked complexities of gender in West Indian society, and that the maskings are in turn part of a larger masking of neocolonial threads within the nationalist project
