Magical Realism and the Postcolonial Novel: Between Faith and Irreverence
This book rethinks the origins and nature of magical realism and provides detailed readings of key novels by Asturias, Carpentier, Garcia Marquez, Rushdie, and Okri. Identifying two different strands of the mode, one characterised by faith, the other by irreverence, Warnes makes available a new vocabulary for the discussion of magical realism.

For my academic purposes I only really focussed on chapter 1,2,6 and 7. I would very much like to go back to the chapters in between in the future, especially the one on Garcia Marquez. A comprehensive book that aims to clarify magical realism in its different contexts, which no doubt will help in future investigations of it.
