    Abstract

    This is not an abstract: this essay responds to the phenomenon of writers being invited "to speak as a writer" at conferences on postcoloniality. My attempt to discuss the setting of my fiction via "the death of the author", to revisit the distinction between writer and narrator, in turn discussed in relation to ... does not lend itself to an abstract. Rather, I must rely on readers' patience and beg their goodwill to follow my text, which cannot claim to be an argument, without the influence of a summary.
