Summary
"In Regenerative Fiction, Alexandra W. Schultheis brings postcolonial and psychoanalytic theories together to explore this tumultuous zone, a place that is at once cutting edge, open wound, and sutured scar. This analysis of the authors' political and aesthetic strategies reveals fissures in the ruling ideology of subject and nation as well as immanent resistance to it."--Jacket
