(Mar. 2, 2016) MELUS Review of Market Aesthetics

MELUS coverThe journal MELUS has just published a review of Market Aesthetics in their Spring 2016 issue.

In the MELUS review, Marion Rohrleitner argues that “Market Aesthetics draws attention to the reasons, possibilities, and limitations inherent in the rise of historical fiction in Caribbean diasporic literature and offers a richly contextualized discussion of the effect of multicultural debates and a globalizing market on the production and consumption of literature.” She specifically highlights Chapter One, “Mixed Blessings: Readerships, Postcolonial Ethics, and the Problem of Intimacy,” as “particularly insightful and effective” and envisions this chapter as “a staple assignment in all of my graduate and advanced undergraduate courses in Latina/o and Caribbean diasporic literatures.”
