Graham MacPhee is Assistant Professor of English at West Chester University. He is the author of The Architecture of the Visible: Technology and Urban Visual Culture (Continuum, 2nd edn, 2007) and co-editor, with Prem Poddar, of Empire and After: Englishness in Postcolonial Perspective (Berghahn, 2007).
Graham MacPhee brilliantly follows the historical tracks of empire into the heartlands of post-war British literature, an area often assumed to be relatively untouched by colonial impacts and their contingent modernist entanglements. This timely and necessary study lays bare how colonial cultural legacies are everywhere palpable within this landscape. -- Elleke Boehmer, Professor of World Literature in English, University of Oxford
