Salman Rushdie, Imaginary Homes (London 1988)

Incs. definition of hybridity:

‘people who root themselves in ideas rather than places, in memories as much as in material things; people who have been obliged to define themselves - because they are so defined by others, by their otherness; people in whose deepest selves strange fusions occur, unprecedented unions between what they were and where they find themselves.’ (pp.124.-25; quoted in Jan Furman, Toni Morrison’s Fiction, Carolina UP 1999, pp.23-24
