Extract here here and here

Not Only the Things That Have Happened will be in bookstores across India in just a couple weeks.

Yesterday, DNA published an extract from the novel. Here is the story of Saramma as she returns to her family after living as the sexual keep of a wealthy man. 

Pyrta and Pratilipi ran extracts when the novel was still a work in process.   Here is the story of Kallen Chothi and the rubber-tappers’ strike, backdrop for the barber, Unnikrishnan, remembering Annakutty. 

And here it is sometime in the 1970s. A little boy, Chuk Chuk has been taken from the railway platform in New Delhi where he has made a home for himself with other street children; he is adopted by a family in a small city in the Midwestern United States. They rename him Asa. It is the first night and day of his life with them.

You can read a bit more about the novel in an interview Platform Magazine(see the post below this one).
