Now Reading: The Wretched of the Earth

The 2004 Grove Press version. I admit it–I’ve never read Wretched all the way through in a single sitting. 

I’m only in Homi Bhabha’s foreword and my brain is already shooting sparks:

“The landscape of opportunity and “choice” has certainly widened in scope, but the colonial shadow falls across the successes of globalization. Dual economies create divided worlds in which uneven and unequal conditions of develoment can often mask the ubiquitous, underlying factors of persistent poverty and malnutrition, caste and racial injustice, the hidden injuries of class, the exploitation of women’s labor, adn the victimization of minorities and refugees.”
