July 2021: Grandparents with Anuk Arudpragasam

Por Literary Friction

Por Literary Friction

Many of us have significant relationships with our grandparents, but is this reflected in literature?

 

This month, we’re really excited to welcome the author Anuk Arudpragasam to talk about his second novel, A Passage North. It's a beautiful, meditative book about a young man named Krishan, who must take a train from Colombo to Northern Sri Lanka to attend a funeral. His relationship with his grandmother is a central part of the story, so we're dedicating this show to the elders of literature. Listen to the episode here.
