my article for nbc asian america
"Given our current vexed and contested cultural moment, Bharati Mukherjee's work takes on an added resonance because of its prescience; as she once wrote, 'the narrative of immigration is the epic narrative of this millennium,'" Ravi Shankar, founding editor of the Drunken Boat online poetry journal and creative writing teacher, told NBC News. "What I have always loved about Mukherjee's work is how central the liberating power of the imagination is and how she always refused to be boxed in, to write those exoticized versions of what an Indian writer is supposed to sound like according to the unspoken tenets of the publishing world."
