DesiBooks Podcast Episode 7

Hello and welcome to Episode 7 of DesiBooks — news and views about desi literature from the world over. I’m your host, Jenny Bhatt. Thank you for tuning in. In today’s episode, in addition to the usual roundup of new notable desi books, short stories, poems, essays, interviews, awards, and more, we have the monthly segment, #DesiReads. This involves writers reading an excerpt from their latest work. No questions or interruptions from me, just the writer and their words. Today, we have Sopan Deb, who has a new memoir out called Missed Translations. Also, #DesiBooksGiveaways is a new segment where you, the listeners, get to win books and book-related giveaways. I’m hoping to make it a weekly thing but let’s see how this one plays out.
