Two Debut Novels: Global Dislocations, Contradictions, and Love (In-Person)

Join Revolution Books for an evening of author readings and conversation. In Brother Alive, Zain Khalid tells of three immigrant boys, their adoptive Imam father in Staten Island, and a hallucinatory double. In All This Could Be Different, Sarah Thankam Mathews tells of a 22-year-old Indian immigrant in the U.S. navigating queer romance and her first job in a monstrous economy. Two poignant novels with characters facing crushing forces of capitalism and tradition, and wrestling with issues of love. 

Zain Khalid has published in The New Yorker. Sarah Thankam Mathews was featured in Best American Short Stories 2020.
