Friends & Fiction with Mary Bly & Sonali Dev

ABOUT THIS EPISODE

Mary Bly joins the Fab Five to discuss her long, successful career writing regency romances under the pseudonym Eloisa James while living somewhat of a double life as a Shakespeare professor and English Dept chair at Fordham University. We hear about how she made the decision to write contemporary fiction (LIZZIE & DANTE, out now) under her real name just this year for the first time and how her love of Italy and the classics infuses all of her writing. https://www.eloisajames.com/ She’s joined by Sonali Dev who writes clever, deeply layered, and heartwarming Bollywood-style romantic comedies in the Jane Austen tradition (INCENSE AND SENSIBILITY, coming July 6th). Sonali discusses giving readers a glimpse into the Indian American experience through her work, and the importance of revisiting and retelling classics like Austen. https://sonalidev.com/
