Product Overview

The novel is said to develop in time with the nation-state, but Berthold Schoene points instead to a new subgenre that is adept at imagining a global community. Schoene reads contemporary British writers--Rachel Cusk, Kiran Desai, Hari Kunzru, Jon McGregor, and David Mitchell-- against established novelists, such as Arundhati Roy, James Kelman, and Ian McEwan. Each chapter explores a different theoretical concept, including "glocality," "glomicity," "tour du monde," "connectivity," and "compearance," altogether defining a new cosmopolitanism that responds to global socioeconomic formations.
