The literary tradition begun by Zora Neale Hurston in the 1930s has since flourished and taken new directions with a diverse body of fiction by more contemporary African-American women writers. This book examines the treatment of domestic violence in Hurston's Their Eyes Were Watching God, Gayl Jones's Corregidora, Gloria Naylor's The Women of Brewster Place and Linden Hills, Alice Walker's The Color Purple, Toni Morrison's The Bluest Eye and Love, Terry McMillan's Mama and A Day Late and a Dollar Short, and Octavia Butler's Seed to Harvest. These novels have given voice to oppressed and abused women. The aims of this work are threefold: to examine how female African American novelists portray domestic abuse; to outline how literary depictions of domestic violence are responsive to cultural and historical forces; and to explore the literary tradition of novels that deal with domestic abuse within the African American community.

In twelve critical and interdisciplinary essays, this text examines the relationship between the fantastic in novels, movies and video games and real-world debates about nationalism, globalization and cosmopolitanism. Topics covered include science fiction and postcolonialism, issues of ethnicity, nation and transnational discourse. Altogether, these essays chart a new discursive space, where postcolonial theory and science fiction and fantasy studies work cooperatively to expand our understanding of the fantastic, while simultaneously expanding the scope of postcolonial discussions.

بعد أن أضحت سلمى حاملاً، قبل الزواج، في قريتها الصغيرة، في المشرق، تتلاشى إلى الأبد أيام البراءة، حين كانت تسبحُ في مياه النبع. تُساق إلى السجن من أجل حمايتها. وعلى وقع صرخاتها، تولد طفلتُها التي اختُطفت منها على الفور. في قلب مدينة إكستر، أكثر المدن إنكليزيةً، تتعلّم سلمى الكياسات الاجتماعية على يد صاحبة منزلها، ثم تستقرّ مع رجل إنكليزي. ولكن في أعماق قلبها، تظلّ تتردّد صرخات طفلتها. وحين لم تعد قادرة على سماعها، تقرّر العودة إلى قريتها، بحثاً عن فلذة كبدها. إنّها رحلة ستغيّر كلّ شيء - ولا شيء. موزّعة بين حقول الزيتون في المشرق، والأرصفة المبلّلة بالمطر في إكستر، تقدّم هذه الرواية تصويراً باهراً لشجاعة امرأةٍ تقفُ في وجه تحدّيات صعبة، لا تُقهر.

إنه العام 1883. منظر طبيعي في شتاء آيسلندا القاسي يمثُل كخلفيّة للمشهد. نتبع الكاهن بلدور سكوغَّسون في مطاردته ثعلباً أزرق غامضاً. لكنّه ما إن يضغط على الزناد، حتى ننجرف بعيداً إلى عالم «فريدريك ب. فريدريكسون» ذي المذهب الواقعي، والفتاة «أبّا» عُهدتُه التي تعاني متلازمة داون. كان فريدريك قد وصل مصادفة خلال تخليصها، بعد أن عُثِرَ عليها العام 1868 مقيّدة إلى دعائم خشبية داخل سفينة جانحة.+++شخصيات الرواية مصائرها مترابطة بصورة جوهرية، وتدريجياً، وفي سياق مفاجئ، سيتكشَّف أن جزءاً من هذه الحكاية الأخّاذة مشتمل على الخرافة، وجزءها الآخر مشتمل على الغموض.
