Lived in between multiple places and spaces, diasporic lives can be difficult to locate, engage with, and analyse. Focusing on examples of serial auto/biography and auto/biographical acts performed across genres and media, this chapter works to promote trans-textual methodological approaches to reading diasporic lives as a more nuanced and comprehensive understanding of lives that are in motion and mutable. Analysis of “Almost Like Praying”, a song penned by Hamilton creator Lin-Manuel Miranda, and Jamaica Kincaid’s two travel narratives, A Small Place and Among Flowers, leads to an argument for transgressing textual boundaries as a means for reading lives marked by movement.
