Making Waves – Connections Across the Indian Ocean

Join three eminent writers whose evocations of Indian Ocean worlds have established new literary geographies.

Join three eminent writers whose evocations of Indian Ocean worlds have established new literary geographies, and whose new work continues to re-define the landscapes of international contemporary writing.

Ananda Devi, from Mauritius, writes lyrical narratives centred on the troubled lives of women at the edges of Mauritian communities. Zanzibar novelist Abdulrazak Gurnah’s narratives trace both the regular and irregular routes of migrants, and work provocatively upon the vagueries of memory and history-telling. Poet, novelist, journalist and academic Tabish Khair provocatively addresses topics from guilt to religion to love in his writing.
This discussion will draw on themes of the family, changing roles and themes, human trafficking, politics and more. This event is in celebration of the launch of Granta 115: The F-Word.
