Author Talk with Bipin Aurora
Join us as Bipin Aurora reads from his short story novel Notes of a Mediocre Man. Notes of a Mediocre Man: Two brothers come to school and do nothing but tell stories. A man goes to a singles dance. A retired man in India tries to collect his pension. A woman tells the story of her husband's death in partition India. An unnamed narrator offers his "notes" on modern-day America, the culture of success. Some of the stories are set in India, some in America. Some stories are fable-like, others more realistic. But all stories deal, in one way or another, with small, "mediocre" people, people trying to fit into a world of bigness, applause, and success. Books will be available for purchase.
