Fiction Reading response

The house in Helene Oyeyeme’s novel White Is For Witching (I will upload the book later), 29 Barton Road, is nothing short of hostile to its guests, creating a paradox between the expectations of comfort and security usually associate with the home and the malice it shows toward strangers. As a bed and breakfast, the house is supposed to represent the values associated with the laws of hospitality,mwhich demand that we admit the stranger into the protection of the home. The home that is made unhomely is common in the horror genre from which Oyeyeme draws. Write and essay in which you explore this paradox. Who is “at home” at 29 Barton Road and who is not? How does the house’s problem with strangers manifest itself in the novel? How does the violation of the laws of hospitality by the house reflect the broader issues and themes around “strangers” such as immigrants, refugees, the homeless and displaced? That is, explore the ways in which the novel stage domestic and national themes side by side.
