Women's writing from South Asia is incredibly diverse; it maps the geographical, cultural, and social hybridity of their respective countries. These authors have not only 'created ' their own lives, but also have attempted to 'rewrite' the historical time. 'Writing Lives, Rewriting Times: Mapping Women's Responses from South Asia' has ten essays on writers such as Jamila Hashmi, Amrita Pritam, Shashi Deshpande, Jhumpa Lahiri, Tehmina Durrani, Ambai, K R Meera, Sujatha Gidla, Chaoba Phuritshabam, Shreema Ningobam, and Soibam Haripriya. The nature of homosexual desire in the film Margharita with a straw, as well as the role of food as an emotional anchor for diasporic communities in women's food memoirs such as Climbing the Mango Trees: A Memoir of a Childhood in India, Tiffin, and Love, Loss, and What We Ate: A Memoir, are also explored in this volume.
