Debut novelist and Lawrence University (Appleton, WI) alumna, Madhuri Vijay, joins us on the release date of The Far Field, the story of a young woman seeking answers to family mysteries in the far reaches of Kashmir, India. With rare acumen and evocative prose, Vijay masterfully examines Indian politics, class prejudice, and sexuality through the lens of an outsider, offering a profound meditation on grief, guilt, and the limits of compassion.
