On 2 November 2011 contributors to the volume 'End of Empire and the English Novel since 1945', (ed. Bill Shwarz and Rachel Gilmore), explored the history of post-war England through their readings of a range of writers and genres. Professor Susheila Nasta, a respondent in the discussion, raised the question of why there still remains an inability in much post-war English fiction to imaginatively engage directly with the realities of migration, decolonisation, immigration and cultural co-existence.
