Jenny Bhatt and Jen Fawkes

Join Interabang Books as we host Jenny Bhatt, author of EACH OF US KILLERS, in conversation with Jen Fawkes, author of MANNEQUIN AND WIFE, for a discussion about their respective story collections. We'll be on Facebook Live on Thursday, October 8 at 6:00pm CST. Be sure to tune in!


Fiction. Short Stories. Asian & Asian American Studies. Set in the American Midwest, England, and India (Mumbai, Ahmedabad, rural Gujarat) the stories in EACH OF US KILLERS are about people trying to realize their dreams and aspirations through their professions. Whether they are chasing money, power, recognition, love, or simply trying to make a decent living, their hunger is as intense as any grand love affair. Straddling the fault lines of class, caste, gender, nationality, globalization, and more, they go against sociocultural norms despite challenges and indignities until singular moments of quiet devastation turn the worlds of these characters--auto-wallah, housemaid, street vendor, journalist, architect, baker, engineer, saree shop employee, professor, yoga instructor, bartender, and more--upside down.
