The aim of this essay is, then, to explore how Mantel, apart from reversing the postcolonial experience, also describes the way feelings of double displacement, marginalisation and the search for identity-recurrent topics in most postcolonial writings-are present both at home and abroad in the case of the Shores, a British couple who move to Saudi Arabia in her novel Eight Months on Ghazzah Street.
Published in 1988 as her third novel, Eight Months on Ghazzah Street was written out of Mantel's own experience in Saudi Arabia, where her husband's job took them for four years.
Like Eight Months on Ghazzah Street, A Change of Climate is about the complex intersection of the personal and political; like Fludd, it is about the ambiguity of identifying good and evil.
