This book discusses colonial and postcolonial textuality under the theoretical scope of Literary Theory, Cultural Critique and Anthropology. It focuses mostly but not exclusively on Angola and Moçambique. In these countries, both writers and literature play a central role in the discussion of politics, thought, culture, and education; Ethnographic Fiction in particular emerges in this context as a genre that allows a violent reading of history and society. The generalized interest in "the cultural in the text" raises literary heritage to the position of a privileged mediator for all forms of postwar predicament. Configuring grounded ethnographies, the fiction that we choose to present and discuss translates simultaneously into localized experience, movable textuality and protean matter, since it applies to changing knowledge, as the field demands it. This work is adjacent to the contributions of researchers who are dedicated to the Literary and Ethnographic fields in their contemporary associations.
