Book Review: Homeless- Growing up Lesbian and Dyslexic in India by K Vaishali

1 min read

Namrata reviews K Vaishali’s memoir Homeless- Growing up Lesbian and Dyslexic in India (Published by Yoda Press and Simon & Schuster, 2023) calling it raw and intimate akin to a conversation with a close friend.

Home is an emotion.

K Vaishali’s memoir Homeless is an extension of this very emotion, one that can make you cry, tickle you funny, think, and tear your heart into pieces before putting it together again.

A published author, K Vaishali’s stories have been a part of numerous literary magazines and have also been shortlisted for awards. Her debut novel was Means to an End (Published by Leadstart, 2017).

Homeless: Growing up Lesbian and Dyslexic in India is a memoir that is raw and intimate. There are certain portions of the book that gnaw you from within, long after you have finished reading the book. Instead of looking back, as is the usual style of memoirs, Vaishali shares her life as it happens. The pain, the hurt, and the anger are palpable in those pages. So is the battle for identity and existence.
