    Sharmistha Mohanty in conversation with Souradeep Roy

    March 15, 2018

    In the latest on our series on independent publishing in India, we speak to Sharmistha Mohanty, founder and co-editor of Almost Island. Almost Island has been running a website for a decade now, hosting the Almost Island Dialogues, and has published six books so far, from their imprint, Almost Island Books. Mohanty speaks of the importance of place in writing; the journey of their imporint which began with Adil Jussawalla's book Trying to Say Goodbye; the importance of looking away from the Anglo-American tradition in writing; and the process by which they shape their books.
