Behind the Pages: A Deep Dive into Sri Lankan Politics & Family with V.V. Ganeshananthan
About this episode
I'm so excited to introduce today's guest, V.V. Ganeshananthan, who also goes by Sugi. She's a novelist whose work has appeared in many leading newspapers and journals, including Granta, The Atlantic Monthly, and The Washington Post.
We had a great conversation about her recent novel Brotherless Night and her debut novel Love Marriage. Both of these books are about families impacted by Sri Lankan politics and conflict, and Sugi has talked a lot about the plots and structures of these books. But today, we get to hear more from Sugi, the person.
I loved talking to her about her writing process, the inspiration behind her work, and her experiences as a Sri Lankan American. It was a rich conversation that I can't wait for you all to hear. So sit back, relax, and enjoy this episode of Immigrantly.
