The World Does Not Know Made Finalist

My novel The World Does Not Know was selected as a Finalist in the Washington Writers Publishing House 2017 Fiction Contest.  The judges said: 

"Although your manuscript was not selected this time, it was a finalist, and the judges admired the novel's clear grasp of place--sensorily, culturally, politically, as well as the bond between the brothers... we believe in this work and hope that it will eventually find a home."

The World Does Not Know Made Finalist

 I talked with Nepali writer, Samrat Upadhyay about madness, exile, resistance  and his new story collection, Mad Country, for Poets&Writers online exclusive in April.

A starred review in Kirkus, and a positive review in the New York Times Book Review (4/7/2017),  I believe the stories in Mad Country reflect the most sublime, masterful, and wholly original fiction of Upadhyay’s work (5 other books) to date.

Read his illuminations and musings about writing fiction, the characters in his book, and what it means to see writing as resistance.
