This study examines the changing literary discourse in German-speaking Switzerland as second generation immigrant authors write compelling narratives and are awarded prestigious literary prizes in Europe. The captivating narratives included in this book are influenced by heightened sensory perceptions within the socialization space of heritage culture and language(s), the multicultural and multilingual environment, and the socio-political climate in twenty-first century Switzerland and Europe. The social framework and literary analysis of works by Seconda and Seconda writers - the second generation immigrants identify themselves as Secondas and Secondos in Switzerland - will appeal to scholars and students who are interested in literary, culture, and social studies as well as German-speaking Europe and aspects of global hybridity.
