Today on the podcast I have Chaya Bhuvaneswar. Her short story collection ‘White Dancing Elephants’ comes out today. This a completely original, beautiful and powerful collection of stories. Chaya is a physician and writer with work in Narrative Magazine, Tin House, Electric Lit, The Millions, Joyland, Michigan Quarterly Review and elsewhere. Her poetry and prose juxtapose Hindu epics, other myths and histories, and the survival of sexual harassment and racialized sexual violence by diverse and queer women of color. She has received a MacDowell Colony fellowship, Sewanee Writers Conference scholarship and Henfield award for her writing.
