Rishi Reddi’s Karma

Rishi Reddi

Born in Hyderabad and raised in the UK and the USA, Rishi Reddi is one of the hottest authors in the South Asian community today. A former environmental attorney for the state of Massachusetts, Reddi made her fiction-writing splash two years ago, when a short story of hers published in the Harvard Review was selected by Pulitzer Prize-winning novelist Michael Chabon to be included in The Best American Short Stories 2005.

After signing a contract with HarperCollins to publish two books, she released her first set, Karma and Other Stories, this past month—to rave reviews. The stories in Karma, set in the Boston area, track the life of an interconnected lndian American community. With her nuanced prose, she wonderfully depicts the depth of her characters and demonstrates the negotiation of their cultures. Check out ‘s May issue for a review of Karma and an interview with Reddi.
