Stories from
Southasia

Our fiction takes the reader on a journey through the places and imaginations of the region: from digital spaces to mountains of Afghanistan, narratives of LGBT life to a meta-narrative of a woman’s agency, and gushing rivers to winding roads. This sample, from both established and emerging authors, provides a sense of the Southasian creative imagination. Take a look; Himal Southasian is a good read.
