The Whole Kahani (The Complete Story), is a collective of British fiction writers of South Asian origin. The group was formed in 2011 to provide a creative perspective that straddles cultures and boundaries, both emotional and geographical. Its aim is to give a new voice to old stories and increase the visibility of South Asian writers in Britain.
From London to Goa, Manchester to Mumbai, spanning start-ups, girl crushes, virtual gigolos, obsessive fans and astrological mishaps, their eclectic mix of short stories, Love Across a Broken Map, explores love and loss across the dividing lines of culture, race and ethnicity. Love is celebrated, broken and forgotten; it is embraced and remembered in this collection of tales of heartbreak and resilience.
In a slight change from the details in our printed brochure, join writers Mona Dash, Shibani Lal and Reshma Ruia as they discuss their stories from the collection.
