“Louisiana Catch perfectly captures what it means to be human in a digital world, where support groups meet online, love interests flirt on Twitter, and people get confused with personas. Equal parts tender and playful, moving and hopeful, Vikram’s prose connects us with timeless truths about grief and redemption in a satisfyingly modern way.” – Stephanie Paterik, Managing Editor, Adweek
“Louisiana Catch is a triumph. In Ahana, Sweta Vikram has created an unforgettable character, strong, wise, and deeply human, who’ll inspire a new generation struggling to come to terms with their identity in a world of blurring identities.”
– Karan Bajaj, New York Times bestselling author, The Yoga of Max’s Discontent
“Across the pond, poet Sweta Vikram’s second novel, Louisana Catch is timely in the wake of #MeToo. A grieving daughter and abuse survivor must summon the courage to run a conference to raise awareness of violence against women. We’re huge fans of Vikram’s poetry, where she deftly handles big themes and issues, and expect no less from this novel. ” – Farhana Shaikh, The Asian Writer
“It is to her considerable credit—and our good fortune—that Sweta Vikram has written a book so appropriate, and relevant for today. Louisiana Catch is not a cynical attempt to follow trends; rather it’s a deeply felt and vividly rendered interrogation of the now (which, in its weird and wonderful way, is at once fleeting and infinite). Vikram has written a humane book about actual human beings, and if that’s not something to savor, and celebrate, in a world that’s increasingly sound-bite sized and ephemeral, I don’t know what is.” – Sean Murphy, Author, Please Talk About Me When I’m Gone
