2019: A Year in Writing

This has been, despite all my early planning, a year of not as much published writing as I would have liked (or even as much as in 2018.) That said, I had 11 pieces published during the year. Six of these were my monthly short stories column at PopMatters. The rest were book reviews at Scroll.in and PopMatters. I also wrote a couple of new short stories for my upcoming collection, Each of Us Killers, with 7.13 Books. There was another round of edits for my upcoming translation of Dhumketu's selected short stories, with HarperCollins India. There were a couple of fun panel discussions at the Jaipur Literary Festival. And a lovely interview about books and the reading life with ShethePeople.

Published: Interview at Literary Hub, Book Marks: Secrets of the Book Critics Series

I am thrilled, grateful, and humbled to join a wonderful set of book critics interviewed in this series at Literary Hub. I've learned from each one of them. And I so enjoyed answering the questions too. Of course, I cannot do any book-related discussion without mentioning Virginia Woolf and Zadie Smith. I only wish I'd managed to also work in Toni Morrison. Still, I gave shout-outs to a few other writers also who inspire me. Read the whole interview here.
