dc.description.abstractThis article addresses Yvonne Vera's narrative craft because the numerous studies on Vera's works have not fully discussed this aspect of her writing. Moreover, the failure to appreciate Vera's narrative style may explain why her writings have sometimes been misinterpreted. Based on a critique of Vera's six creative works, the article is informed by a reading strategy called postcolonial critical theory whose objective is to bring to light in literary texts all the implications of colonial domination (Walder, 1998, p. 3). The article argues that despite the huge challenges sometimes posed by Vera's unconventional narratology, her oeuvre is recommended for study in tertiary institutions.en_US
