Synopsis

Love Across a Broken Map Short Stories from the Whole Kahani by Susmita Bhattacharya

This eclectic mix explores love and loss across the dividing lines of culture, race and ethnicity. Love is celebrated, broken and forgotten; is embraced and remembered, in this collection of stories of heartbreak and resilience.

"The Whole Kahani" (The Complete Story), is a collective of British fiction writers of South Asian origin. The group was formed in 2011 to provide a creative perspective that straddles cultures and boundaries both emotional and geographical. Its aim is to give a new voice to old stories and increase the visibility of South Asian writers in Britain. Members of The Whole Kahani are: Kavita A. Jindal, Dimmi Khan, Reshma Ruia, Mona Dash, Radhika Kapur, Rohan Kar, C.G. Menon, Farrah Yusuf, Iman Qureshi and Shibani Lal.

Reviews

This unsettling collection is laden with remarkable stories: from the surreal and painterly delights of domino sisters to myth-making and studies of loneliness, grief and repression. A delicious range of voices from the haunting and spare to the lush and lyrical. -- Mona Arshi
