About the Author

Award-winning poet, dancer, and novelist Tishani Doshi lives in Tamil Nadu. Her debut novel, The Pleasure Seekers, was longlisted for the International IMPAC Dublin Literary Award, and Small Days and Nights was named an Irish Times Book of the Year 2019.


Tishani Doshi brings all her skills as one of the world's best poets to this lovely, beguiling, brilliant novel.--Gary Shteyngart, best-selling author of Lake Success
A beautiful gem of a book full of heartbreak and joy. A deep exploration of what it is to be within family and what it is to occupy your own skin and the ebb and flow between the two.--Nayomi Munaweera, author of What Lies Between Us
A shattering study of disaffection and belonging...[A] concise novel of staggering depth...[D]isturbing, deep and utterly extraordinary.--Bidisha
Radiantly written...this superb novel from Doshi ranges over family secrets, trying to do the right thing, and the sheer contingency of life in all its richness and uncertainty.--Phil Baker
Every sentence in this achingly beautiful book carries multiple meanings that resonate across the pages. Tishani Doshi uses language like a blade, cutting through our defenses to illuminate what it means to love, and forgive, and truly exist in the life we have.--Maaza Mengiste, author of The Shadow King
