  BOOK CHAT Our best writings are about ourselves  
  BY ROSHANI DHAMALA  
 
Rajan Prasad Pokharel, Associate Professor of English at Tribhuvan University, has six published books – two essay collections and four fictional works – to his credit. His first essay collection was published in 1993, and others followed soon after. His much-admired fiction works, “Rebels of the Mountains, “Beyond the Life Lines,” “Between Roars and Rigors,” and “The Sufferer’s Message,” were published from the United States between 2011 and 2014.

Currently, Pokharel has been traveling back and forth between Nepal and Canada, and, in the process, compiling and collecting ideas for his upcoming books. The Week’s Roshani Dhamala met up with Pokharel to talk about his writing and interests.
