Summary
"Culture Writing argues that the period of decolonization witnessed dynamic exchanges between writers and anthropologists on both sides of the Atlantic. The book analyzes writers who engaged professionally with anthropology--Barbara Pym, Ursula Le Guin, Saul Bellow, Édouard Glissant--and anthropologists who adopted literary forms--Laura Bohannan, Michel Leiris, and Claude Lévi-Strauss"--
