Congratulations to Deepa Anappara who has co-edited the essay collection, Letters To A Writer of Colour, which was published by Vintage to great acclaim last month.
As well as co-editing the collection, Deepa also has an essay featured in the book. Other writers with work in the collection include Madeliene Thien, Xiaolu Guo, Sharlene Teo and Mohammed Hanif.
Addressing assumptions about reading, writing and storytelling, the book has received lots of praise: Nikesh Shukla says: “This book is essential”, while fellow author Pankaj Mishra calls it:”Bracing and moving . . . No one interested in how we read and should read fiction can afford to miss this.”
We wish Deepa every success with Letters To A Writer of Colour and hope it will find many readers.
Deepa Anappara won 2nd prize in the 2013 Bristol Short Story Prize with her story, The Breakdown. The story is available in our Volume 6 anthology.
