Given that race is a socio-historical and political construction, this work argues that race is also a narrative construction. Examining the construction of race in works by Italian authors since national unification (Deledda, Serao, Ginzburg and Ghermandi), the book finds certain elements to be common in both racial and narrative formations. These include intertextuality; characterization, plot, and tropes; the tension between the projections of identity as individual, group, and universal; and the processes of identification and otherness.
