Anooj Pakvasa

Fiction | University of Akron | Class of 2020

“Anooj Pakvasa’s thesis, Regalia and Stories, is an ambitious approach to discarding the assumed conventions of fictional narrative and submerges his readers into a wonderful experience of language execution. Like a mesmerizing Jackson Pollock painting, Pakvasa asks his readers to look at the larger canvas of fictional storytelling in order to rethink how we take in what a tale can be in the end. His stories challenge his reader not just with a sophisticated prose style but how we might rethink the way we look at the world.”
