Conversations with Bharati Mukherjee (Literary Conversations) Cover

 

Synopses & Reviews

Publisher Comments:

The first naturalized citizen to win the National Book Critics Circle Award, Bharati Mukherjee (b. 1940), born into a rigid hierarchy as a Bengali Brahmin and raised in the elite of Calcutta society, joined the American masses by choice. This journey from a privileged yet circumscribed life to one of free will and risk supplied the experiences she has turned into literature.

From her first interview, originally published over three decades ago in her native tongue Bengali in the Calcutta journal Desh and appearing here for the first time in English, to an in-depth interview in 2007 granted specifically for this collection, this volume provides a candid look at the woman who has been called the grande dame of diasporic Indian literature.

Synopsis:

Interviews with the Indian-American author of The Tiger's Daughter, Jasmine, The Holder of the World, and The Middleman and Other Stories (winner of the 1989 National Book Critics Circle Award)

About the Author

Bradley C. Edwards is assistant professor of English and co-director of the American Studies Program at Georgia Southern University. His work has appeared in American Literary Realism and Stephen Crane Studies.
