The Meagre Tarmac is master storywriter Clark Blaise’s first new collection of short fiction in nearly two decades. A suite of linked stories about the trials and tribulations of several generations of Indo-Americans, these are stories of great literary and sociological import. Grappling with the changing nature of race relations in post 9-11 America and the spectre (and reality) of terrorism, The Meagre Tarmac is vintage Blaise. Join us for a taste of the new collection and an in-depth conversation on the craft of story writing.
