Feroz Rather is an Indian writer hailing from Kashmir.[1]


Rather is currently a PhD student of Creative Writing at Florida State University.[2] He studied English literature in New Delhi, worked with Random House, and did his MFA program from California State University Fresno.[3]


Rather's debut The Night of the Broken Glass, a collection of interlinked short stories, was released in India in 2018 to positive reviews.[4][5][6] Some critics pinpointed flaws in its uneven prose, at times overly ornate and unwieldy, and in its treatment of female characters.[7][8][9]
