Book Launch for Pasha Malla's Fugue States > MAY 26

Penguin Random House Canada and Type invite you to the launch of Fugue States, the new novel from Trillium Award winner Pasha Malla. Fugue States is the story of two young men – Ash Dhar, grieving the death of his father, and his best friend (and pothead drifter) Matt – who undertake a Quixotic quest from Canada to Kashmir. Malla talks with David Chariandy, the author of Soucouyant, about fathers, funerals, and faraway tourism.

"Life is anything but ordinary in the hands of this gifted writer."
– Vancouver Sun

Pasha Malla is the author of five works of poetry and fiction, including the story collection The Withdrawal Method and the novel People Park. His work has won the Danuta Gleed Literary Award, the Trillium Book Prize, an Arthur Ellis Award, and several National Magazine awards. It has also been shortlisted for the Amazon.ca Best First Novel Award and the Commonwealth Prize (Best First Book, Canada & Caribbean), and longlisted for the Scotiabank Giller Prize and the International IMPAC Dublin Literary Award. Pasha is a monthly books columnist for The Globe and Mail, and a regular contributor to Newyorker.com, The Walrus, and CBC Radio. He lives in Hamilton, Ontario.
