Postcolonial Fiction and Disability : Exceptional Children, Metaphor and Materiality Hardback
by C. Barker
This book is the first study of disability in postcolonial fiction.
Focusing on canonical novels, it explores the metaphorical functions and material presence of disabled child characters.
Barker argues that progressive disability politics emerge from postcolonial concerns, and establishes dialogues between postcolonialism and disability studies.
