Join Rain Taxi and the Twin Cities Book Festival as we toast a stunning first novel by an acclaimed young Indian-American talent!
Shruti Swamy’s astonishing story collection, A House is a Body, was one of last year’s most heralded debuts. Now this young Indian-American talent has unleashed her first novel, The Archer(Algonquin Books), a captivating coming-of-age story that explores a woman’s intricate relationship to art, culture, and tradition. Compared by author C Pam Zhang to cinematic masterpieces by the great Satyajit Ray—“like Ray, Swamy evokes an India that resists flat stereotype and teems with exuberance, beauty, and life”—The Archer is bound to become a 21st-century classic.
