Piyali Bhattacharya profiled on NBC News

September 1, 2016

Piyali Bhattacharya, editor of the recently released Good Girls Marry Doctors, was featured on NBC News: Asian America. Kavita Das, a contributor to NBC News, wrote an illuminating interview that tracks the creation of the collection – from the conversations that sparked the idea to the difficulties in finding a publisher.


“The whole point of creating this book was to weave it out of an assortment of voices,” Piyali explains. “Writing this book based on only one person’s experiences would have been more like a memoir, and less like taking a survey of an entire community of women whose opinions have never been sought out before.”
