The Lives Of Indians Across Oceans

The Lives Of Indians Across Oceans

Akhil Sharma joins us to discuss his new collection of short stories A Life of Adventure and Delight, eight stories that focus on Indian protagonists at home and abroad. The characters fight against bad luck and loneliness and struggle to achieve any kind of happiness -- from a woman who experiences love in her arranged marriage only once, very briefly, to the story of a boy whose mother is an alcoholic who is eventually sent to India to be murdered by her own family.
