His Fathers Disease by Aruni Kashyap

University of Georgia English Department and Creative Writing Professor Aruni Kashyap's latest book, His Father's Disease: Stories (CONTEXT 2019) was reviewed in The Telegraph.

From the article: "When an author writes from a restive part of India — say, Kashmir or, in the present case, Assam — readers often expect him to focus on questions of violence or identity. This can unwittingly infringe on the author’s right to express himself freely, and relegate his own experiences to a secondary position. In His Father’s Disease, Aruni Kashyap not only addresses this issue but also challenges it through 10 remarkable short stories, while exploring the ideas of linguistic and ethnic stereotypes and sexuality."
