Chael Cunningham Rahul Mehta’s debut short story collection is an emotionally arresting exploration of the lives of Indian American gay men and their families Manil Suri the New York Times bestselling author of The Death of Vishn These stories feature young gay men whose parents have migrated to America from India; in some ways westernized they struggle to break free from their parents' cultural heritage In the title story a young man wrestles with the familial rites of respect due his grandfather In the semi humourous break up story 'What we mean' Carson is leaving our narrator by means of a Dear John letter and finds his life shrinking almost literally And in 'Citizen' Ranjan confounds her family's expectations when it comes to taking the American citizenship test by cleverly and amusingly subverting their best efforts of supportThese are stylish and accomplished short stories that have already garnered international praise
uarantineU and The Age of Shiva calls uarantine “an insightful and compellingly readable collection of stories in which Rahul Mehta masterfully explores the emotions the conflicts the complex accommodations of being gay and Indian America Mehta's collection of short stories range from descriptions of gay Indian American men's relationships to the struggles of Indian family members adjusting to a new life in the United States The uestions of race and sexuality are key components in most of the short stories and the plots are refreshing and interesting Although many of the stories focus on the themes of family belonging and the separation between Indian and Indian American experiences they all provide a slightly different take that makes them worth reading again By the end of this collection I found myself wondering why the cover description asserts that the entire collection focuses on gay Indian American men without any mention of the focus on Indian and Indian American women Although only one story Citizen has a main character who is an Indian woman most of the stories include a strong focus on family and friends who are Indian American women Some of the stories include protagonists with difficult personalities and it often the secondary characters and women in the story on the periphery that drew me back to the collection
