Narang describes India as a land that lives simultaneously in several centuries, “accepting much and rejecting nothing.” It is a place of contrasts and contradictions, “where volatile emotions see-saw against a phlegmatic acceptance of the writ of fate.” Her stories, set in northern India—sometimes in the westernized homes of the educated elite, sometimes in the mud huts of peasants—tell of love, politics, family passions, and changing traditions.


Saloni Narang was born in northern India and educated in New Delhi. Her work has been widely published in India and Australia, as well as in the United States.
