In Creole Renegades,

B?n?dicte Boisseron looks at exiled Caribbean authors--Edwidge Danticat, Jamaica

Kincaid, V. S. Naipaul, Maryse Cond?, Dany Laferri?re, 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 racial emancipation, but their deviance is not

defiant.



Underscoring

the typically ignored contentious relationship between modern diaspora authors

and the Caribbean, Boisseron ultimately argues that displacement and creative

autonomy are often manifest in guilt and betrayal, central themes that emerge

again and again in the work of these writers.



Publication of the paperback edition made possible by a Sustaining

the Humanities through the American Rescue Plan grant from the National

Endowment for the Humanities.
