Abstract:

In Creole Renegades, Bénédicte Boisseron looks at exiled Caribbean authors-Edwidge Danticat, Jamaica Kincaid, V.S. Naipaul, Maryse Condé, Dany Laferriére, and more-whose works have been well received in their adopted North American countries but who are often viewed by their home islands as sell-outs, opportunists, or traitors. These expatriate and second-generation authors refuse to be simple bearers of Caribbean culture, often dramatically distancing themselves from the postcolonial archipelago. Their writing is frequently infused with an enticing sense of cultural, sexual, or raci.
