This article examines identity narratives of adult adoptees who have undergone dislocations which make impossible the construction of a seamless narrative of origin. Focusing on the dynamic between their experience of uprootedness and the modernist compulsion for a "fundamental ground" that is "beyond the reach of play" (Derrida 1978:279), we argue that the pressure to fix identity operates to expose both the tenuousness of the concept of a center or ground and the problems with the postmodernist impulse to celebrate a vision of identity as only play. http://tcs.ntu.ac.uk/tcs/abstracts/17(6).html
