Small Days and Nights by Tishani Doshi With Salman Rushdie

Tishani Doshi with Salman Rushdie

From award-winning poet Tishani Doshi comes her newest novel Small Days and Nights, an exquisitely written and many-layered story about the search for belonging and the consequences of deception. Small Days and Nights shows Doshi at her very best. Her gorgeous writing is deceptively succinct, conveying the emotion of her characters and creating incredible depth with minimal language. Join us for the book launch featuring the author in conversation with renowned writer Salman Rushdie.

"Tishani Doshi brings all her skills as one of the world’s best poets to this lovely, beguiling, brilliant novel." — Gary Shteyngart, best-selling author of Lake Success


“A beautiful gem of a book full of heartbreak and joy. A deep exploration of what it is to be within family and what it is to occupy your own skin and the ebb and flow between the two.” — Nayomi Munaweera, author of What Lies Between Us


“Radiantly written . . . this superb novel from Doshi ranges over family secrets, trying to do the right thing, and the sheer contingency of life in all its richness and uncertainty.”— Phil Baker, Times (UK)
