This book discusses a rich variety of voices from the margins and experiences of living in the postmillennial globalised world represented in selected novels by Irish-Canadian, British, American, Serbian, Australian, Iraqi and Māori authors. Contributions focus on illustrative examples of the contemporary novel that reflects acute awareness of globalizing processes and the rising tension between global and local identities, discourses and trends. In its diversity, the book serves to map voices from the new margins overshadowed by the intense pressure of globalization. Whether these new margins are ethnic minorities living in globalized centres of contemporary metropoles or authors whose national, local or regional voices are marginalized by works with more global ones, they are equally deserving of the attention of general readers, university students and literary scholars. The book will primarily appeal to scholars in the fields of literary, gender, postcolonial and food studies, but will also be of interest to a broader readership involved in explorations of literary works in the context of globalizing processes.
