Rivers of Ink
Selected Essays

Claire Chambers

In this series of illuminating essays, Claire Chambers explores global literature, with a special focus on texts from Pakistan and its diaspora. Highlighting its quality and urgency, and authors’ bold treatment of hot topics like Islamophobia, racism, and the culture industry, Chambers formulates a strong case for drawing this writing into the mainstream English canon. Chambers’ voice is incisive and compelling as she analyses emerging as well as established writers working in various genres. This makes Rivers of Ink a necessary, clear summons for expansion to the field of contemporary global literature.
