📚📚 More about Midnight’s Borders

“What experiences and lives unfold in these pages. Heartbreaking and still, something we must all notice and understand.” ­– Maaza Mengiste, author of The Shadow King

"Suchitra's account of her journeys across the undefinable and ever-shifting borders between India and its neighbors is gripping, frightening, faithful, and beautiful. In Afghanistan, Kashmir, and India, from one dangerous conflict zone to another, she spoke with people, ate with them, and listened to their stories. As a bedouin who grew up listening to beautiful stories from beautiful storytellers around a fire, I was transported by her storytelling. This is a serious, often funny, and deeply revealing book." —Mohamedou Ould Salahi, author of Guantánamo Diary

“Unique and ambitious, Vijayan's project gains urgency and significance from our moment of resurgent nationalisms, when borders are being aggressively reasserted, in India and across the globe.” —Gaiutra Bahadur, author of Coolie Woman

"An essential, beautifully written report from the hellish margins of a modern mega-state struggling to be a nation, of people whose lives continue to be shaped by violent political marches across age-old homes and habitats. A memorable, humane ‘museum of forgotten stories’ that we must all read and remember." —Mirza Waheed, author of The Collaborator and The Book of Gold Leaves


📍New York via Madras, London, Cairo, and Kabul.
