Alka Joshi was born in India and immigrated to the US when she was nine years old, and published her debut novel, “The Henna Artist”, at the age of 62. Vivid and compelling in its portrait of one woman’s struggle for fulfillment in a society pivoting between the traditional and the modern, “The Henna Artist” leads the audience on a journey through 1950s post-independence India that is all at once lush and fascinating, stark and cruel.
