Megha Majumdar

In her incendiary debut novel, A Burning, Megha Majumdar writes a gripping thriller with the force of an epic…“taut, symphonic, propulsive, and riveting.” Presenting its contemporary Indian characters with prismatic portraiture, it demonstrates the consequences of limited choices, hopes and dreams available to people living on the margins. This is a novel of our pandemic times, an exploration of precarity in all its forms, as funny as it is sad.
