Summary
Twenty years ago, to the mystification and shock of his family and friends, the young Anosh Irani took off for a place he'd only heard about in books: Vancouver, Canada. His idea was both grand and vague: he would invent himself as a writer in this far-off land. Miraculously, Irani did just that, publishing award-winning novels and plays set in his hometown of Bombay--but not without a great price, and not without radically changing his worldview. With these seven stories and one brief but powerful memoir, Irani for the first time explores the experience of living between worlds--India and Canada. As Irani says: "One is the place of my birth, and the other a place I choose to live in. I'm interested in how these completely different worlds speak to each other, and what happens when people from one world move to the other, and are trapped there. What does the journey give to people? What does it take away, tear apart? To my surprise, the form of the story allowed me to ask these questions." ... The collection culminates in a gorgeous and emotionally raw denouement: a story exploring the author's own experience of twenty years in Canada as an immigrant, ingeniously blurring the line between fiction and fact
