At the Paris Review, Anuk Arudpragasam discusses his novel, A Passage North, and how he relates to the reading habits of his main character, Krishan. “I think a lot through texts,” he says. “I often refer to a line or a passage or a moment as a way to explain to somebody how I’m feeling or to refer to something I want to communicate. These moments expand my memory of life. They’re like faint memories that I can always use to compare to my present experience.”
