Rahul Mehta'S book Quarantine deals with Indian gays' life in USA
Sunday, 30th May 2010
Rahul Mehta’s nine short stories are about relationships: young homosexual NRIs, their relations with their ‘traditional’ Indian grandparents and parents, ‘straight’ siblings, gay Indian-Americans and their Indian ‘guide boys’.
Almost all the stories are narrated in the first person, from the point of view of a gay Indian in the US. All of them have American boyfriends, and some also travel to India with their partners. Some belong to Gujarati households. These similarities make the resemblance between the writer and the protagonists sharp.
