Geeta Kothari

Born and raised in New York across the street from the city morgue and ten blocks south of the United Nations, Geeta Kothari grew up calling India home even though she’s never actually lived there. Having resided in England, Western Massachusetts, and now Pittsburgh, she calls none of those places home. 

This confusion is reflected in her nonfiction and fiction, including her much-reprinted essay, “If You Are What You Eat, Then What Am I?” and her collection of stories, I Brake for Moose and Other Stories. The nonfiction editor at the Kenyon Review and a co-founder of the Novel Workshop , she teaches at the University of Pittsburgh, where she also directs the Writing Center.
