Yorkwrites salutes Professor Priscila Uppal

Professor Priscila Uppal’s latest work is a modern take on Shakespeare’s classic King Lear. To Whom It May Concern (Doubleday, 2008) explores themes of fealty, family and fading glory, told in part through the eyes of patriarch Hardey Dange. Fighting to maintain control over the lives of his three children, while facing the prospect of losing the family home, Dange is a character at once comedic and tragic, his story both universal and singularly touching.

As well as authoring To Whom It May Concern, Professor Uppal has produced five collections of poetry, the acclaimed novel The Divine Economy of Salvation, and was on the 2007 short list for the prestigious Griffin Poetry Prize.
