The Whole Kahani

The Whole Kahani (The Complete Story) is a collective of British fiction writers of south Asian origin. The group was formed in 2011 to provide a rich creative perspective that straddles cultures and boundaries. Its aim is to give a fresh voice to British Asian fiction and increase the visibility of South Asian writers in Britain. The Whole Kahani includes fiction writers, poets and screen-writers, many with an array of awards. The collective has published three anthologies: Love Across A Broken Map, May We Borrow Your Country and Tongues & Bellies, the latter two with Linen Press. Reviewers of the books have said: ‘A thoroughly modern and lively collection which reaches out across multiple histories and distinctive worlds’ and ‘These individual authors have given the reader a dazzling, multihued work as stylistically diverse as it is thematically united.’
