About the Book

Arrival is a collection of soulful short stories exploring the search for home and identity in a new land and culture. The reader gets a glimpse of the immigrants’ struggles, joys, and challenges in a language that flows easily with a witty and poetic sensibility. Distinct yet similar, the stories present readers with the trials and tribulations of people who are caught between two worlds: one that they have left and the other they have adopted. Right from Arrival—the opening story that provides the collection its name—to Departure and to Postscript, the last two stories, its characters face an identity crisis. Emotional and funny, this book is a poignant reminder of the ever-evolving search for a home from one world to the other.

About the Author

Born in India, and settled in America, Prabhu Jha brings his readers a dual perspective as an insider and outsider. With a Doctorate in English literature and a Master’s degree in English as a Second Language, he has his feet firmly planted in two different worlds. This dichotomy is evident in his short stories revealing interesting layers and shades of meaning. Arrival is Jha’s second publication, the first being Dust of Memory, a poetry collection that was published in 2014.
