Kindle Magazine has an all-poetry issue out now, and I am so pleased that they have republished “The Ten Idylls” – an old sequence of mine inspired by translations of 2000-year old Tamil Sangam poetry by A.K. Ramanujan. The poems were written in two bursts in 2002 and 2006 and published in a handmade chapbook, Iyari (2006), and then in a book, Witchcraft (2008). Here they are online.
The anthology Baker’s Dozen: The Elle-Tranquebar Book of Short Stories is out now from Tranquebar Press and available at all good bookstores, online and offline. It features six winners of the Elle Fiction Awards, including my short story “Greed and the Gandhi Quartet”, as well as seven stories from the Tranquebar stable. Aside from yours truly, the authors are Ruchika Chanana, Divya Sreedharan, Payal Mukherjee, Kim Kanagaki, Sanjay Sipahimalani, Nighat M. Gandhi, Tishani Doshi, Sheba Karim, Madhulika Liddle and Mridula Koshy.
