When: Thu., July 20, 8-10 p.m. 2017
Join us for a reading with Akhil Sharma (India). Akhil will be reading from his highly-anticipated novel A Life of Adventure and Delight. From the award-winning author of Family Life comes A Life of Adventure and Delight, an engrossing window into the Indian experience at home and abroad. Akhil Sharma’s deeply perceptive collection of short stories weaves between India, New York, and New Jersey, profiling flawed characters as they stumble, repent, reform, and relapse. Wrestling with tradition and temptation, they long for belonging and meaning but veer inexorably toward self-destruction, doomed to repeat their mistakes.
