Editorial Reviews

From the Publisher

'The essays in this volume are significant in mapping out the gendered dimension of the exilic experience. As such, they not only expand our understanding of exile as an interstitial reality, but also recuperate the inspired and inspiring lives and works of women who have been doubly marginalized, as both gendered and cultural 'other', from mainstream studies focused solely on men's experiences.' - Nancy Vosburg, Professor of Modern Languages, Stetson University
