Fiction authors of color irritated by expectations of political correctness at book signings


Thrity Umrigar is a prolific author from India with an interesting column in the Washington Post Style section on Monday, May 6.

Her novels are complex family sagas, like “The Space Between Us”, “The World We Found”, and “Everyone’s Son”.


She talks about the quizzed about political correctness at book events, as indicated by the title of her article, “For writers of color, the questions that sting”.

Technically, people from India are usually considered Caucasian by science, but still call themselves POC.
