A few months into its release in India, The Sari Shop Widow has found itself on the bestsellers’ shelf at most book stores in the country. After Hrs chats with author Shobhan Bantwal as she discusses the novel, the dearth of female protagonists and also has a message for women writers
With six novels to her name, and having co-written a couple of anthologies, Shobhan Bantwal has carved a niche for herself. Based in Arizona, USA, the author not only writes novels, but is also a columnist and writer of short fiction. Her debut work, The Dowry Bride, was well received and was followed by an equally successful novel titled The Unexpected Son. Her work primarily combines contemporary women’s issues with romantic elements. With her latest book, The Sari Shop Widow, available at book stores in India, Shobhan gets candid with After Hrs.
