Veena Gokhale readings


Veena Gokhale will be in Ottawa next weekend presenting “Bombay Wali and Other Stories” at the following venues:

Saturday November 23, Rosemount Library, 18 Rosemount (in the Hintonburg area): Reading followed by Q&A and book signing, 2-3 pm.

Sunday November 24, Books on Beachwood, 35 Beechwood Ave. In the Vanier area. Author Appearance, 12-2 pm.


Twelve stories that provide startling glimpses of contemporary life in Bombay, and elsewhere. A wealthy business woman compelled by the desire to hurt her best friend; an old woman in a Tokyo apartment seeking the touch of a baby’s hand; a woman reflecting on violence as a riot rages outside her home. Tales about friendship and repulsion, family ties and freedom; violence, public and private; ambition and uncertainty, alienation and acceptance, growing up and growing old.
