Graham J. Murphy

University Press of Mississippi

In his essay “Entanglement and Dis-Entanglement in Vandana Singh’s Short Fiction,” Graham J. Murphy investigates Vandana Singh’s subtle intersections of utopianism, human-animal affairs, and biophilia, defined loosely as a deeply-felt and profound connection with the natural world. For Murphy, stories such as “Entanglement” (2014) and “Are You Sannata 3159?” (2010) stage various issues of globalization and (dis)entanglement experienced by human and nonhuman animals alike, who are enmeshed in ever-expanding and all-consuming urban centers, including (but not limited to) the growing metropolises of India that are prevalent in Singh’s fictions.
