This book discusses and compares the themes of transformation in "Jasmine" by Bharati Mukherjee and "Brick Lane" by Monica Ali. The main objective is to explore similarities and differences thorough analysis of characters, settings and plots, and to find out how they correspond and how they differ. The themes of race, gender and class will be seen through the lens of migration and multiculturalism in a postcolonial setting, which is a prevailing theme in the two novels. Furthermore, the study focuses on the question of discrimination and oppression, as these issues are related to post colonialism and Diaspora. In particular, the book investigates why some people are discriminated against, and how literature represents this discrimination. The study emphasizes on the bitter relationship between the East and the West. The two novels comprise themes like migration, multiculturalism, religion, cultural aspects, economic inequality, fundamentalism and terrorist violence. These issues are not new, and they are more relevant than ever in the dynamic picture of the world today. This comparison should therefore be of interest to others as well.
