LET'S TALK ABOUT THE NEW GOLD DIGGERS!

 

Art Forum SF presents Virtually SALA (South Asian Literature & Arts), 

live series episode 4, on September 23, 2021, | 8:30 PM PST. 

 

IN CONVERSATION WITH SANJENA SATHIAN, an award-winning author

with moderator Chaitali Sen, an author.

 

Sanjena Sathian is the author of the novel GOLD DIGGERS, published in April 2021 by Penguin Press, which she is currently adapting for television with Mindy Kaling's production company Kaling International. She is a graduate of the Iowa Writers' Workshop and a former Paul and Daisy Soros Fellow. She has also worked as a journalist in San Francisco and Mumbai.


Her award-winning short fiction appears in Conjunctions, Boulevard, Joyland, Salt Hill, and The Master's Review. In addition, she's written nonfiction for The New Yorker, The New York Times, The Washington Post, The San Francisco Chronicle, Food and Wine, The Boston Globe, The Juggernaut, The Millions, OZY, and more.

She has taught creative writing to high school, college, graduate, and post-graduate level students in Iowa, Alaska, and New Zealand, and last year founded the Bombay Writers' Workshop.

 

"Sanjena Sathian's debut novel GOLD DIGGER is a magical realist coming-of-age story; Gold Diggers skewers the model minority myth to tell a hilarious and moving story about immigrant identity and community and the underside of ambition. A work of 24-karat genius."

                — Ron Charles, The Washington Post

 

Chaitali Sen is the author of the novel, The Pathless Sky, and short stories and essays published in Boulevard, Catapult, Colorado Review, Ecotone, Los Angeles Review of Books, New England Review, New Ohio Review, Shenandoah, and other publications. As the winner of the 2021 Mary McCarthy Prize for Short Fiction, her story collection A New Race of Men from Heaven is forthcoming from Sarabande Books in January 2023. She lives outside of Austin, Texas, with her family. 

 

"Sanjena Sathian's debut novel tackles that elusive but universally desired feeling of belonging — in one's body, family, community, and history — through an inventive and intelligent plot (a heist involving alchemy). Just as Kanye's "Gold Diggers" permeated the airwaves and came to invoke the early aughts, I hope that readers and writers alike will come to regard Sathian's "Gold Diggers" as a fresh and magical take on the American dream."

Jahanvi Pendarkar, Lawyer, Los Latos California
