Overview

This collection will change the way all stories--short and long--are told, written, and consumed. --KIESE LAYMON, author of Heavy In two-time O. Henry-prize winner Swamy's debut collection of stories, dreams collide with reality, modernity collides with antiquity, myth with true identity, and women grapple with desire, with ego, with motherhood and mortality. In Earthly Pleasures, Radika, a young painter living alone in San Francisco, begins a secret romance with one of India's biggest celebrities. In A Simple Composition, a husband's moment of crisis leads to his wife's discovery of a dark, ecstatic joy and the sense of a new beginning. In the title story, an exhausted mother watches, distracted and paralyzed, as a California wildfire approaches her home. With a knife blade's edge and precision, the stories of A House Is a Body travel from India to America and back again to reveal the small moments of beauty, pain, and power that contain the world. The beauty and timeless grace of these stories will always speak for themselves. --PETER ORNER, author of Maggie Brown & Others
