“Thestories in Rahul Mehta's Quarantineamplify a surprising new voice: gentle, even tender, but powerful." —Pankaj Mishra, author of Butter Chicken inLudhiana

Reminiscentof Jhumpa Lahiri’s Interpreterof Maladies and the work of Michael Cunningham, Rahul Mehta’s debut shortstory collection is an emotionally arresting exploration of the lives ofIndian-American gay men and their families. Manil Suri, the New YorkTimes bestselling author of The Death of Vishnu and The Age ofShiva calls Quarantine “an insightful andcompellingly readable collection of stories in which Rahul Mehta masterfullyexplores the emotions, the conflicts, the complex accommodations of being gayand Indian American."

From the Back Cover:

With buoyant humor and incisive, cunning prose, Rahul Mehta sets off into uncharted literary territory. The characters in Quarantine—openly gay Indian-American men—are Westernized in some ways, with cosmopolitan views on friendship and sex, while struggling to maintain relationships with their families and cultural traditions. Grappling with the issues that concern all gay men—social acceptance, the right to pursue happiness, and the heavy toll of listening to their hearts and bodies—they confront an elder generation's attachment to old-country ways. Estranged from their cultural in-group and still set apart from larger society, the young men in these lyrical, provocative, emotionally wrenching, yet frequently funny stories find themselves quarantined.

Already a runaway success in India, Quarantine marks the debut of a unique literary talent.

About the Author:

Rahul Mehta’s debut short story collection, Quarantine, won a Lambda Literary Award and the Asian American Literary Award for Fiction. His work has appeared in the Kenyon Review, the Sun, New Stories from the South, the New York Times Magazine, the International Herald Tribune, Marie Claire India, and other publications. An Out magazine “Out 100” honoree, he lives in Philadelphia with his partner and their dog, and teaches creative writing at the University of the Arts.
