MSt student Prajwal Parajuly’s The Gurkha’s Daughter: Stories (Quercus, 3 Jan 2013), a collection of stories about Gurkhas, Darjeeling, Kalimpong and the world, was number four on the Amazon “Hot New Releases” on 13 November 2012.
Update: Prajwal will be reading at the Albion Beatnik Bookshop on 7th February 2013.
The Lady describes his collection as
“A collection of finely crafted, vibrant stories that focus on the minutiae of the life of the Nepalese community in their homeland and abroad. Stylistically reminiscent of Raymond Carver, while at the same time opening a door on to an unfamiliar world.”
The Guardian review speaks of its “energetic play of perspectives” and reviews have appeared in a number of other newspapers and journals.

Prajwal’s book is available in bookshops and on Amazon.
