About the books
The Elopement is set in both the author’s hometown of Raleigh, North Carolina, as well as the rural farm country of West Cork, Ireland, where she eloped with her Japanese college boyfriend in 2000 in search of a new fairytale. But hardships of many kinds made her question, “How much is too much to trade for a promise of love?” Dipika Kohli talked with Frank Stasio on NPR WUNC station’s “The State of Things”about parental conflicts and what it’s like ot trade everything you know for a chance at love.
The Dive is a story about how it feels to lose one’s first-ever pregnancy
when faced with a heartbreaking choice. Featured in Exhale Magazine.
Flight of Pisces is set in the years just prior to The Elopement, when the American-born author traveled to the northern region of Himachal Pradesh, India, to learn something of the land from which her parents come. One moment atop a mountain forever changed the course of her life.
Kanishka** (2015) tells the true story of what it felt like to lose one’s
best friend at the age of 10. Kanishka is the name of the Air India flight
which was bombed by terrorists, just off the coast of Ireland. The story concludes when the author comes face-to-face, 15 years after the event, with the long-suppressed and denied actuality of it, when she sees with her own eyes the name of her old friend at a memorial in Ath na Cista, West Cork, which is dedicated to the victims of AI182.
