In this episode of AAWW Radio, we're exploring the craft of the short story with two authors who released short story collections in 2017. The quotidian stories in Akhil Sharma’s new book simmer with a barely hidden, devastatingly emotional undercurrent―and have earned him comparisons to Chekov. Reminiscent of Calvino and Borges, Kanishk Tharoor’s lush and inventive collection ranges from science fiction to historical pastiche, delving into what is lost from environmental collapse and language loss. After Akhil Sharma and Kanishk Tharoor read from their short story collections, they discuss the craft of the short story in a conversation with Meera Nair, cofounder of the reading series Queens Writers Resist and author of the novel Video won the won the 7th Annual Asian-American Literary Award and was a Washington Post Best Book of the Year.
