A Life of Adventure and Delight
Akhil Sharma

Paperback $19.99 - Faber
Fiction - Published: 29/Aug/2018 - ISBN: 9780571326327

Akhil Sharma's stories expose the cultural collisions - the paradoxes, ironies, and harmonies - that characterise modern life. Whether describing the tensions of an arranged marriage, the trauma of having an alcoholic mother, or the petty corruption of an Indian neighbourhood, they raise questions about what it means to be foreign and what home means to those in exile. Sharma marries the minimalism of Chekhov and Carver with a flair for dark comedy.
