It witnessed a diverse array of voices and genres, from the emergence of postmodernism to the rise of multicultural literature. Authors explored themes of identity, globalisation, and societal change, grappling with the complexities of a rapidly evolving world. The decade saw the debut of influential works like “The English Patient” by Michael Ondaatje and “The God of Small Things” by Arundhati Roy, alongside the continued prominence of established writers like Toni Morrison and Salman Rushdie.
