Rajorshi Chakraborti podcast

Rajorshi Chakraborti has mined his own life to write a gripping novel about the disjunction of the immigrant experience. As part of the 2018 Nelson Arts Festival’s Page & Blackmore Readers and Writers programme, Kerry Sunderland joins Chakraborti on stage to explore how relationships can become distorted by guilt and remorse, and how we choose what we are willing to see.  Born in Calcutta, half-brothers Ashim and Abhay are separated as children. When they are reunited in Wellington 30 years later, Abhay is forced to question his memories of the past.
