Folio Prize-winning author Akhil Sharma (India) is debuting his highly-anticipated short story collection «A Life of Adventure and Delight» here at Alphabet City.
«A Life of Adventure and Delight» presents an engrossing window into the Indian experience at home and abroad. Like Akhil himself (a Delhi native and professor at Rutgers University), this deeply perceptive collection leaps between India, New York, and New Jersey. Akhil's previous novel, «A Family Life» was selected as one of the 5 best fiction books of 2014 by the New York Times Book Review and won the €100,000 Irish Dublin Literary Award.
We are honored that this internationally-lauded writer has chosen City of Asylum to premier his new work. Be sure to RSVP!
