In Of Lives Between Lines Daniel Jewesbury uses the fictional account of an Anglo-Indian woman in John Masters’ 1954 novel, Bhowani Junction as a template to construct his own hybrid autobiography. This questioning of the supposed monadic modern self highlights the move toward a post-colonial, situational subjectivity.

Jewesbury constructs a comparative mapping between the original text and the screenplay from the 1956 George Cukor Hollywood adaptation of the novel, tracing his own Anglo-Indian background by photographing certain locations from his past that denote potential sites for events in the novel. A newly-commissioned text by Kathleen J. Cassity, Identity in Motion, further questions the nature of this fluid subject.
