Raw with struggle and the precariousness of life as an immigrant in need of a sponsor, a young person in need of financial security in uncertain, unfair times, Sarah Thankam Mathews’ All This Could Be Different is an intoxicating firecracker of a debut.

While her Indian parents were unfairly forced to return to their homeland, Sneha remains in the States, with the weight of their loving expectations on her shoulders, and past abuses weighing heavy in her heart. A new job has taken her to a new location, where she knows no one. After determining to have a whole lot of sex, Sneha forms group of friends – individuals with their own struggles, but the kind of folk who’ll pick you up, dust you down and support you until you’re back on your feet.

Defy tightrope-walking the intersection of the personal and political, All This Could Be Different presents an ode to friendship and lust, to queer love and community as a young woman transcends abuses of her past, and tackles cultural differences and the hardships of being an immigrant to forge a different kind of life. It’s also funny, stirring and alive with longing, and left me longing to read what Sarah Thankam Mathews writes next.
