Thrity Umrigar

The bestselling author of ten novels—most recently Reese’s Book Club pick Honor—Thrity Umrigar talks about her new novel, The Museum of Failures, coming September 26:

“Once l conceived of the character of Remy—an Indian-American man, successful in his new life in America, but with many unresolved issues about his early years in India, a man always in conflict with the city of his birth—I knew that he would see Bombay, with the sadness and pain it held for him, as a museum of failures.  The book came together quickly after that.”
