Elizabeth Flock - The Heart Is a Shifting Sea: Love and Marriage in Mumbai — in conversation with Sam Sanders

Upcoming Event
Saturday, February 17, 2018 - 3:30pm to 4:30pm

Now a reporter for PBS NewsHour, Flock spent several years as a Mumbai-based features and investigative writer for Forbes India Magazine and her first book is a vivid profile of India’s largest metropolis as reflected in the lives of three middle-class couples. Writing with a depth and intimacy more often found in fiction, Flock chronicles an arranged marriage that evolves into true love, follows the struggles of a young professional couple to accommodate both partners’ ambitions and independence, and introduces an Islamic couple longing to have a child. Together, these three compelling narratives convey both the texture of daily lives in 21st-century Mumbai and illuminate the pressures on Indian society as technology and Western culture jars with tradition.

Flock will be in conversation with Sam Sanders, host of NPR'S It's Been a Minute.
