Event description

Description

From the award-winning author of Family Life comes an engrossing window into the Indian experience at home and abroad. Akhil Sharma’s deeply perceptive collection of short stories weaves between India, New York, and New Jersey, profiling flawed characters as they stumble, repent, reform, and relapse. Wrestling with tradition and temptation, they long for belonging and meaning but veer inexorably toward self-destruction, doomed to repeat their mistakes. Sharma masterfully depicts how the burdens of family and culture shape our choices, whether or not we try to resist them.
