What We Read: Feminist fiction book club, 2018

Since February of 2016, Zubaan has hosted a book club that reads and discusses feminist fiction every few weeks. In 2018, these discussions covered the following eight books:

Salt Houses, Hala Alyan  [picked from a list of the best books of 2017*]

Swing Time, Zadie Smith [from a list of books by or about artists]

Little Fires Everywhere, Celeste Ng [from a list of books featuring adoption]

Erotic Stories for Punjabi Widows, Balli Kaur Jaswal [from a list of books about friendship]

Kocharethi: The Araya Woman, Narayan [from a list of books by indigenous peoples]

A Life in Words, Ismat Chughtai [from a list of memoirs from South Asia]

Masks, Fumiko Enchi [picked by group consensus at previous meeting]

Olive Kitteridge, Elizabeth Strout [from a list of books dealing with ageing]

Next year, we'll start with JCB-shortlisted All The Lives We Never Lived, by Anuradha Roy. Join us at 11am on January 27, at the Zubaan office if you've read it.


*Unless otherwise mentioned, these lists  are compilations of suggestions from book club members, submitted with that meeting's theme in mind.
