A strong belief in the diversity of the immigration narrative is found time and time again in Mukherjee's novel Jasmine, a postcolonial text that looks at the shifting identity politics through the immigration journey of Jyoti, a young girl from India. Mukherjee establishes an overarching decolonizing narrative of an immigrant through Jyoti’s transition in identities throughout the course of her story, using the liminality of Jyoti’s identity as a means of deconstructing the immigrant myth.
