Summary:
This book tells the life and travel stories of women, whether in fact or as possibility, and examines women's physical mobility in a culture of gendered, postcolonial space that restricts their movement. Straddling the divide between fiction and scholarship, it combines fictional narrative, contemplation, theoretical thinking, scholarly discussion, and interviews.
