Veena Gokhale Talks About Being Published on The Rover

Veena Gokhale writes in The Rover about how writing a book is like having a baby. Veena questions: “[t]he book was here, but so what?”, in reference to her newly published book Bombay Wali and other stories (Guernica 2013). The Rover is an independent review of art and culture.

Veena writes: “When I found a publisher, Guernica Editions, for my first fiction collection – Bombay Wali and Other Stories – after about eight months of marketing and as many rejections, I felt I had fared not too badly… The book (baby) would squirm its way into a cruel, indifferent world in Spring 2013. This pregnancy was going to be almost as long as an elephants’, so I decided to put the end result out of my mind.”
