The Cosmopolitan Novel

Berthold Schoene

Edinburgh University Press

This chapter examines three novels, written by Arundhati Roy, Kiran Desai and Hari Kunzru. These novels are concerned with the feasibility of sustaining the dynamics of Nancean world-formation in the context of an ever-thickening (neo-)nationalist unrest and global glomicity. The chapter also notes that globalisation is usually held responsible for the elimination of cultural difference and replacing it with worldwide homogeneity.

Keywords:   Arundhati Roy, Kiran Desai, Hari Kunzru, feasibility, Nancean world-formation, (neo-)nationalist unrest, global glomicity, cultural difference, homogeneity
