Caryl Phillips (Contemporary World Writers) by Bénédicte Ledent (Manchester University Press / 2002)
This volume starts from a textual analysis of Phillips's fiction and examines how it charts a new diasporic sensibility, grounded in the novelist's Caribbeanness but also expressive of a redefined sense of Britishness. Focusing on Phillips's pervasive interest in displacement and addresses characterisation and the non-conventional form of his current narratives, two major aspects of his art which are discussed here in the context of debates on post-colonialism.
