The post-colonial disappointment: An interpretation of the in - between world of Vikram lall
The present paper will explore the post-colonial disappointment in The In-Between World of Vikram Lall as a trope in the writing of East African-Asian writer, M.G. Vassanji. The novel is the voice of a character, Vikram Lall, described as “a cheat of monstrous reptilian” who is currently in exile after being framed in an international scandal by Kenyan politicians. This paper intends to demonstrate the profound and careful examination of one man’s search for his place in the world; as it takes up the themes of nature of community in a volatile society, the relations between colony and colonizer, and the inescapable presence of the past. It is a hard process of creation, discovery and finally a deeply personal work.
