The book describes how Indian fiction has moved beyond notions of 'postcolonial' writing to reflect increasingly confident and diverse cultures. Reading New India covers such topics as: Representations of the city--Mumbai and Bangalore; Chick Lit to 'Crick Lit'; Crime novels; Graphic Novels. Including a chronological time-line, biographies of major authors, further reading and a glossary of Hindi terms, this book is an essential guide for students of contemporary world literature and postcolonial writing."--Page 4 of cover."@en ;
