Embracing the ‘Other’: Colum McCann’s Zoli (2006)
ABSTRACT This chapter explores the idea of mobility, directing its attention to Colum McCann’s novel Zoli and its focus on the marginalized identity of the Roma and the cultural incommensurability of the travelling communities of Europe, something evident in the precarious status of Irish Travellers. A detailed reading of the novel highlights the themes of movement and difference at the heart of the narrative.
