Sara Suleri Goodyear
Location: The Renaissance Society
Sara Suleri Goodyear is the author of two highly praised books, The Rhetoric of English India, and Meatless Days. Both are considered indispensible to the field of postcolonial studies. Meatless Days, a collection of essays derived from the author's reminiscences of her childhood, reconstructs the socio-political events surrounding the formation of Pakistan in 1947. In the words of Henry Louis Gates, "Suleri is a postcolonial Proust to Rushdie's phantasmagorical Pynchon."
