Tales of Survival from Today's India: A Bilingual Hindi-English Reading with Uday Prakash

A lowly weaver's identity is stolen by a ruthless Brahmin; a street sweeper uncovers a hollow wall in Delhi filled with black money; and as a slum-baby's head grown bigger and bigger, he grows smarter and smarter—as his family races to find the cure.
Hindi writer Uday Prakash and translator Jason Grunebaum will read from The Walls of Delhi (Seven Stories Press), shortlisted for the 2013 DSC Prize for South Asian Literature.
Uday Prakash’s awards include the Sahitya Akademi, India’s top prize for Hindi. His fiction and poetry has been translated into German, Japanese, Marathi, Malayalam, Dutch, and Urdu.
