Writer and journalist Sanjena Sathian in conversation with then-Creative Director & Advisory Editor Vishakha Darbha about rule-breaking, questions from her publishing team and whether explaining world-building came easily to the writing of her debut novel, Gold Diggers (Random House, 2021), what makes a "good" immigrant novel, and writing about the Indian-American diaspora.
