Acts of terrorism have the power to consume our news sources, conversations, and worries. Karan Mahajan unpacks this troubling topic in his award-winning novel, The Association of Small Bombs, a National Book Award Finalist and Winner of the Bard Fiction Prize. Mahajan illustrates the effects that terrorism has on its victims and its perpetrators with the tale of two brothers, Tushar and Nakul Khurana and their “small bomb.” The Wall Street Journal says that Mahajan’s work “is not the first novel about the aftermath of a terrorist attack, but it is the finest…at capturing the seduction and force of the murderous, annihilating illogic that increasingly consumes the globe.” Sponsored by George Mason’s Creative Writing Program.
