“You Are My Dear Friend”
by Madhuri Vijay
from the August 17, 2020 issue of The New Yorker
Madhuri Vijay is the author of The Far Field, which Grove Press published in 2019. I haven’t read it, but it was longlisted for the PEN/Hemingway Prize and the Dylan Thomas Prize, two prizes that are worth paying attention to when looking for up-and-coming authors. I’ve not read anything by her, but this is a nice opportunity to fix that.
I hope to get some thoughts of my own in the comments this week, but in the meantime, please feel welcome to leave your thoughts on the story or The Far Field.
