‘Sarah Thankam Mathews’ prose is undeniable . . . she captures the sneaky, unsaying parts of longing’
Raven Leilani, author of Luster
‘Some books are merely luminous . . . this one is iridescent’ Susan Choi, author of Trust Exercise
Graduating into a recession, Sneha tries on adulthood like an ill-fitting suit. Moving to a new city, she embraces all that it has to offer: friends that feel like family, gay bars, house parties and new romances. But when painful secrets rear their heads, corporate jobs go off the rails and evictions loom, Sneha and her community find themselves looking for a new way to live.
All This Could Be Different is a novel about being young in the twenty-first century. About work, precarity, distant parents, found family, activism, queer love, sex and hope. About knowing that all this could be different.
