Email: Favourite Indian writers? (HK)
Hmm, think Vikram Seth. Incredible poetry, prose. Favourite books – ‘A Suitable Boy’, ‘An Equal Music’, ‘The Golden Gate’, ‘Two Lives’. Met in London recently, so inspiring. One of most influential writers of modern era.
Equally great writers – Arundhati Roy (God of Small Things), Salman Rushdie (Midnight’s Children), Amitav Ghosh (Sea of Poppies, The Glass Palace), Jhumpa Lahiri (The Namesake).
