AbstractHistoryArchive Description

Paul Sharrad reads Mena Abdullah's collection of short stories Time of the Peacock, noting that although the stories, published in book-form in 1965, are 'not stridently oppositional,' neither are they 'passively consenting to assimilation' (254). They offer, Sharrad argues, productive sites for engagement with issues of community, identity, and diaspora.
