#FiveDesiFaves: Rani Shah on her favorite desi nonfiction

Hello and welcome to Episode 6 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 our monthly segment, #FiveDesiFaves. This involves writers sharing five desi books that have influenced them. No questions or interruptions from me, just the writer and their words. Today, we have Rani Shah, who has a lovely new non-fiction book out called Wisdom From a Humble Jellyfish. So settle in for a listen.
