qThe Infinite Longing for Homeq is a groundbreaking study of Ben Okri s and K.S. Maniam s literary problematization of home in relation to subjectivity and the nation within and beyond the context of Nigeria and Malaysia. Drawing on Lacan, i ek, Laclau and Mouffe, and weaving through history, politics, philosophy and literature, this book critically examines the motives and means by which peoples forced to live together in a country love and hate each other, and overlook the truths about themselves, their actions and beliefs. It looks into why some embrace heterogeneity and open-endedness while others are internally compelled to over-identify passionately with their religion and race, and to posit theirs as irreducibly distinct from and superior to others . qThe Infinite Longing for Homeq also traces through Okri s and Maniam s writings a way out of today s political aporia, a path to the re-creation of a new society humbled and unified by the recognition of its participation in flawed humanity.qThe Struggle for One Nigeria (Lagos: Federal Ministry of Information, 1967).
