In her debut collection, Fire Girl: Essays on India, America, and the In-Between, Sayantani Dasgupta examines her personal story against the history, religion, popular culture and mythology of South Asia and her current home in the American West. "Dasgupta writes with such keen intelligence & vivid clarity that we can’t help be taken in. Lyrical, compassionate, & compelling, these beautiful essays transport us to another world... & it is a world we come to recognize as our own."--Kim Barnes
