South Asian Literary and Theater Arts Festival

Thanks to the diligent reader who noted that I hadn’t put my reading tomorrow up here! I’m psyched to be reading at one of my favorite childhood haunts–the National Museum of Natural History, at SALTAF, courtesy of NETSAP-DC.

I get to read with Manil Suri and Tahmima Anam again, and I’m also excited to meet Naeem Murr, who wrote A Perfect Man, a book I read earlier this year and enjoyed immensely.

The Washington Post

Love Marriage was reviewed in The Washington Post! It’ll be in tomorrow’s print edition, but you can read the review online now. The lede of the piece references (among other things) an essay I wrote when I was 19 and a freshman in college.

The Outlook section of the same newspaper has a piece I wrote about trying to explain Sri Lanka. That, too, is online, with accompanying audio (segment will play automatically).

Bethesda Magazine, Italian TV

The latest issue of Bethesda Magazine has a story about me and Becca. It isn’t available online, so head to newsstands if you want to read!

Also, I just found the link to the interview I did with three other South Asian authors for Italian Web/TV while I was in Torino. You can watch that here. Don’t be thrown by the Italian if you don’t speak it—it switches to English!
