Through an analysis of the writings of three 20th-century Indian women, this book explores how memoirs, fictions and histories written by women can be read as counter-narratives of colonial modernity. Burton discusses how memories of the physical space of houses and the emotive attachment to home can be used to understand women's reactions to partition and the creation of the Indian nation.show more
