"Maitra provides a refreshing and necessary reassessment of the binds of identity politics in an increasingly mediated world.

In Maitra’s ingenious account of identity, opposition need not be oppositional.” —David Eng Media Studies, Northwestern University, Associate Professor, Reading Groups, Insurgent, Identity, Literature, Novels, Ebooks
