Kamala Markandaya (1924-2004), who made a niche in Indian Novel in English through her substance and techniques, is a diasporic novelist. By virtue of her narrative techniques, she succeeds in creating a desired effect on her readers who feel spellbound by her contents and narrative designs. Multicultural Consciousness in the Novels of Kamala Markandaya explores her eleven novels: Nectar in a Sieve, Some Inner Fury, A Silence of Desire, Possession, A Handful of Rice, The Coffer Dams, The Nowhere Man, Two Virgins, The Golden Honeycomb, Pleasure City and Bombay Tiger (posthumous), and offers fresh interpretations of her texts which are deconstructed from various angles to trace out her hidden dimensions as a novelist of multicultural consciousness. The book will be helpful to the general readers, students, researchers and teachers who will find enough mental food for further ponderings and researches on Kamala Markandaya.
