This volume approaches Tabish Khair's writings (both his theoretical proposals and his novels) from numerous different perspectives. Contributors engage from varied critical stances with Khair's academic writings in a fruitful dialogue, analyze his social, political and religious concerns, and elucidate his characteristics as a novelist and his literary powers. Furthermore, this volume is highly enriched by the presence of a hitherto unpublished play by Khair, entitled The One Percent Agency, which focuses on a tourism agency specializing in bringing Bollywood-style Indian weddings to foreign tourists. In the process, it becomes a satirical commentary on the packaging of international tourism as well as the ability of common Indians to adapt and thrive. It depicts the metropolitan India of the new millennium and inter-community relations in subtle and powerful ways.
