Abstract: Writing from a diasporic subject position, Sara Suleri evinces her loyalty and deep love for her family in her memoir Meatless Days. She accepts and evokes both the paternal preoccupation with conventional historicity of narrative and her Welsh mother's abstinence from engagement with cultural and social context to produce a text that embodies flux in both form and content. Meatless Days echoes, specifically, the maternal relationship with her children in resurrecting and reconfiguring the experience of its very engenderer.
