'In Transcultural Writers and Novels in the Age of Global Mobility, Arianna Dagnino analyzes a new type of literature emerging from artists’ increased movement and cultural flows spawned by globalization. This "transcultural" literature is produced by authors who write across cultural and national boundaries and who transcend in their lives and creative production the borders of a single culture. Dagnino's book contains a creative rendition of interviews conducted with five internationally renowned writers—Inez Baranay, Brian Castro, Alberto Manguel, Tim Parks, and Ilija Trojanow—and a critical exegesis reflecting on thematical, critical, and stylistical aspects.

'By studying the selected authors’ corpus of work, life experiences, and cultural orientations, Dagnino explores the implicit, often subconscious, process of cultural and imaginative metamorphosis that leads transcultural writers and their fictionalized characters beyond ethnic, national, racial, or religious loci of identity and identity formation. Drawing on the theoretical framework of comparative cultural studies, she offers insight into transcultural writing related to belonging, hybridity, cultural errancy, the "Other," worldviews, translingualism, deterritorialization, neonomadism, as well as genre, thematic patterns, and narrative techniques. Dagnino also outlines the implications of transcultural writing within the wider context of world literature(s) and identifies some of the main traits that characterize “transcultural novels.”' (Publication summary)

Smita Agarwal examines Inez Baranay's Neem Dreams and a range of poems from Judith Rodriguez's House by the Water: New and Selected Poems. Agarwal concludes: 'Between the two texts under consideration in this paper, the reader discerns multiculturalism's literary journey in a technologically advancing, globalised world. Whereas in the Rodriguez poems ... the explorations are tentative and self-reflexive, Baranay's novel is strident in its approach, with an emphasis on contemporary diversity and its thrust on the idea of other nations and cultures being able to contribute their experience on an equal footing to our collective understanding of a globalised society.'
