Sethi spelled out,
“The novel is a collection of stories that are a look into the life in Pakistan with humour, compassion, psychological acuity, and emotional immediacy. Most of the characters are young, but I’ve also included two short stories that revolve around a female politician. I wonder where I got the inspiration for that?”
The Novel is a Bunch of Stories Related to Besieged Edginess
“the young woman with an anxiety disorder discovers the numbing pleasures of an illicit love affair. A radicalized student’s preparations for his sister’s wedding involve beating up the groom. An actress is forced to grow up fast on the set of her first major tv show, where the real intrigue takes place off-screen.”
49th spot out of the 53 books
While Kristin Iversen of Refinery29 ranked it at the 49th spot out of the 53 books she has selected, she called it
“Raucous and bracingly sharp, each of the stories in Mira Sethi’s debut collection offers a glimpse into lives that are hapless, hopeful, and decidedly, delightfully messy.”
After Prime Minister Imran Khan’s book club recommendations, Sethi’s novel would be the next pick of reading freaks.
