Writing in the Margins sparkles with fresh insights into a group of writers for whom life and art were intricately interwoven. Marilyn Papayanis investigates the "ex-centric" expatriate--a metropolitan figure whose search for the good life leads him away from the industrial West to marginalized or colonized domains. This book offers a wonderful mix of genres that usually don't go together--expatriate fiction and travel writing, as well as biography.
