This book is a comparative reading of selected contemporary fictions from Australia and South Africa. By drawing on postcolonial theory and trauma theory, the book argues that specific genres such as the Bildungsroman, the historical novel and the pastoral are transformed in distinctive ways to address the continuing presence of the colonial past.
