About this product
- DescriptionHa?d Bouazza is a highly in?uential and celebrated author in the Netherlands today. In the context of contemporary Dutch literature, Bouazza s Moroccan background still marks a divergence from the born-and-bred Dutch rm. Authors with a bi- or multicultural background are still often cast in the role of exotic outsider . Bouazza both challenges and uses this position to the full. His writing demonstrates that the perceived us-them or self-other positions are questionable ideological constructs. He undermines the concept of a uni?ed culture and the wholeness of the self. He explores and exploits stereotypical beliefs held on both sides of the East West divide. The result is a magical realist setting that both puzzles and enchants. This book offers a reading of Bouazza s literary prose that responds to the interpretative opportunities offered by an author who skilfully and creatively explores his peculiar freedom in his Homeless Entertainment.
