Mira Sethi's Upcoming Debut Novel 'Are You Enjoying' Makes It To Vogue's 2021 Must Read
Mira Sethi is all set to channel her inner Rupi Kaur and we’re not surprised.
Mira Sethi, a name that needs no introduction is only moving forward. From journalism to television, theatre, an online talk show, and now a book – this successful woman is all set to channel her inner Rupi Kaur and we’re not surprised.
Mira Sethi’s upcoming debut novel has already made it to the list of 2021’s most anticipated books, compiled by Refinery29 and Vogue Magazine.
The Yeh Dil Mera starlet has occasionally been sharing snippets of her upcoming book 'Are You Enjoying?' on social media. In the words of Chloe Schama, the senior editor at Vogue, it is described as “a powerful book with a light touch, marking the arrival of an assured storyteller.”
Schama added, “The stories that makeup Mira Sethi’s debut collection are set in Pakistan, but that is about where the similarities among her protagonists end: A young actress negotiates power dynamics on and off the set; a divorced man strikes up an affair with his diplomat neighbor. A portrait of a diverse and varied country told through the emotions and exploits of her characters.”
Back in September last year, Mira Sethi claimed that her upcoming debut novel would explore the high-stakes worlds of television, politics as well as the intimate corridors of the home and the bedroom, now it has made to Vogue.
The novel ‘Are You Enjoying’ is a free-spirited, confident, indelible introduction to a galvanizing new talent.
While Kristin Iversen of Refinery29 ranked it at the 49th spot out of the 53 books she has selected, she called it “Raucous and bracingly sharp, each of the stories in Mira Sethi’s debut collection offers a glimpse into lives that are hapless, hopeful, and decidedly, delightfully messy.”
