Inspired Writers Series

Hosted by MFA Program's Phil Klay

Megha Majumdar

"Politics and Power"

In her universally acclaimed A Burning, Megha Majumdar tells the story of the aftermath of a terrorist attack in modern India through the lives of three characters caught up in the subsequent political hysteria. In what the New Yorker’s James Wood declared an “immersive” and “masterly” narrative, Megha richly inhabits different voices and perspectives in a tale at once sophisticated about the workings of power, and deeply humanistic in its depictions of characters struggling at the margins. She will be in conversation with Fairfield’s MFA writing professor and author Phil Klay.
