Contemporary Indian Fiction

One Monday and three Wednesdays Wednesday, March 23, April 20, and May 4, Noon - 1:30 p.m Monday, April 4, 12:30 - 2 pm | Compass Bank, Second Floor, 2001 Kirby at San Felipe


There has been a burgeoning of fiction by Indian and Indian American authors in the last decade, and this seminar will focus on four exciting books, each very different, in an attempt to analyze what is unique about these writers and their visions. We will discuss Jhumpa Lahiri’s The Interpreter of Maladies; Arundhati Roy’s The God of Small Things; Manil Suri’s The Death of Vishnu; and Chitra Divakaruni’s Queen of Dreams, in this order.

Chitra Divakaruni is the author of two prize-winning story collections, Arranged Marriage and The Unknown Errors of Our Lives, four volumes of poetry, and the bestselling novels, The Mistress of Spices, Sister of My Heart, and The Vine of Desire. Her work has appeared in the New Yorker and the Atlantic Monthly, among others. Ms. Divakaruni teaches creative writing at the University of Houston.
