The Parcel

Hi Appleberry,

I thought I had posted this one already but it looks like I haven’t. The Parcel by Anosh Irani is the tale of a hijra in India, which is the community of transgender people who live there and are both feared and revered. The story focuses around the sex trade in India and the relationships that are had between the sex trade workers with each other, with their customers, and with those who have forced them into being in this line of work.

I thought it was a well-written story about an aspect of India that seems to be getting discussed more and more now.
