When Aneesha returns to Chicago for the summer, all she wants to do is write and carouse with friends. Maybe rekindle things with her old flame, Whitney, who has a serious new job and relationship. Aneesha weaves through dance parties, dive bars, and all-night Mexican joints on her bike, but keeping old friends is complicated in this charming debut novel from Kamala Puligandla.
"Kamala Puligandla's Zigzags is a tender story about community as family, a love letter to a city and a season. This novel feels like summer, its tangle of bodies, all its sticky longing." –Safia Elhillo, Author of The January Children
