(Family Quarrels: Towards a Critisicm of Indian Writing in...)
Family Quarrels: Towards a Critisicm of Indian Writing in English is the first critical work that traces the history of the criticism of Indian writing in English in order to demonstrate the development of this literature as, a response to its criticism, and an imitation of western literary trends. In this effort, Family Quarrels, throws an entirely new light on the development of Indian Literature in English. The critical push towards finding a style that was at once both Indian and fashionably au courant compelled Indian writers to innovate stylistically. Both India's political background and sociolinguistic theories such as the Sapir-Whorf hypothesis led to such a criticism. Evaluations of previous critical perspectives show where they fail and point to the need for a new interpretive community. A «proper» criticism of Indian literature in English should take into consideration the language contact situation and the writers' context of situation.
(This book of interviews conducted by Jussawalla and Dasen...)
This book of interviews conducted by Jussawalla and Dasenbrock is the first to feature third-world authors discussing their works and their careers. These are joined by three Chicano writers from the U.S. In this fascinating collection of fourteen interviews (eleven previously unpublished) the interviewers speak with leading writers from Kenya, Nigeria, Somalia, India, Pakistan, New Zealand, and the Caribbean islands, as well as with three Chicano writers. Largely considered non-canonical, they address questions about the effects of colonialism, their place in English-language literature, the politics of language in non-Western societies, and the value of their work in helping those with Western perspectives to understand their cultures.
(Conversations with V. S. Naipaul brings together intervie...)
Conversations with V. S. Naipaul brings together interviews from a thirty-six-year span and reveals a witty, sometimes scathing talker with a free-ranging curiosity, but one who dreads intimacy and cherishes a solitary detachment. This collection shows the changing faces of this world-class author. In early interviews, mostly given to such fellow writers and colleagues as Derek Walcott and the poet Eric Roach, Naipaul is clipped, brusque, and clearly impatient with interviewers. More recent interviews, given primarily to journalists rather than literary figures, reveal a maturing Naipaul, often warm, passionate, and forthcoming about his private life.

Chiffon Saris: Poems is a collection of poems that capture the multiplicity of being tied to Indian roots while living as an American in the borders of where Mexico and the United States intersect.

Feroza Jussawalla's primary motivation in writing is to bridge the gap between the culture from which she came and the culture she now lives in. She is moving gradually from scholarly writing to creative writing because she feels that it is through the creative dramatization of cross-cultural events that one can portray the contemporary angst of our global, trans-cultural, diasporic condition. This is why she chose to do the book on Vidiadhar Surajprasad Naipaul. She has learned a great deal by interviewing writers, as in her book Interviews with Writers of the Post-Colonial World, and by studying the manuscripts of Paul Scott.
Feroza Jussawalla was a member of the board of directors of the Border Book Festival. She is a member of the Modem Language Association of America.
Feroza Jussawalla married Reed Way Dasenbrock on July 26, 1982. The marriage produced one child.
