Not just for desis; for anyone who loves books

Absolutely love this podcast. Yes, it started with my interest in hearing more about desi writers, their books, their art, their space. But this podcast, while it’s focus is on desi writers, covers so many themes, rhythms, craft related topics, narratives that it would be of interest to anyone who’s interested in books, writing, or just stories from around the world. The read alouds are great too. It has now become my almost daily listening pleasure. And I love what it does for the authors featured here. Bravo!
