How can we approach Margaret Laurence's writing in a postcolonial and postmodern age? Challenging Territory is a collection of essays that examine positionality across the range of Laurence's writing, from her early journalism through the fiction to the late nonfiction.
"This book will add significantly to our understanding of one of Canada's most important writers." Kristjana Gunnars
"Challenging Territory consists of essays that give various insights into [Margaret Laurence's] fiction as well as her journalistic and political work. The contributions, carefully selected and organised, reflect a wide range of issues, from coloniality and postcoloniality, gender and power, to psychological, cultural, and sociopolitical aspects that affected Margaret Laurence's writing." Angela Spereng, Canadian Literature
