“In this thought-provoking study, Arianna Dagnino is concerned to identify a cohort of writers who, in the ease with which they move between domiciles, languages and cultures, find themselves ahead of the pack in expressing a newly emergent transcultural sensibility. In a series of interviews, intercut with her own diary entries and treated to a light process of fictionalization – which is brought off with a novelist’s skilled hand – five writers present their reflections on their genesis, their present situation, and their future aims in a more and more globalized world, reflections which are never less than interesting and are often far- sighted. Their comments are in turn interrogated by Dagnino and set in a wider framework of transcultural theory. Transcultural Writers and Novels in the Age of Global Mobility is a significant contribution to a growing body of work on the metamorphosis of literary culture in times of dissolving cultural boundaries.” – Nobel Laureate J M Coetzee, The University of Adelaide
