Prerana Pakhrin Misrahi

From the backcover

The stories in Hearts on Our Sleeves by 6 young Nepali women illustrators are abundant with love, courage, vulnerability and hope. Their coming into their selves - both real and fictional - juxtapose movement between seeming opposites - foreign places and homes, community and independence, peace and purpose, the ordinary and the out-of-ordinary. These stories of adaptations, negotiations, reconciliations and balancing acts are time-capsules for a time when the readers and the authors find themselves lost and in doubt.
