We are delighted to welcome, over his Delhi home, Indian writer Chandrahas Choudhury. The author of a debut novel, Arzee the Dwarf, and editor of a well-received anthology, India: A Traveler’s Literary Companion, he is here with an excellent novel just released here in the U.S., Clouds (Simon & Schuster).
“Clouds deals with a number of Big Issues — from the purpose of life to inequity to gender, but it carries its weight lithely and elegantly. The interplay of deep thoughtfulness and quirky humour never fails to engage, and remains just that little bit unpredictable, like those youknowwhats. Choudhury is a rare talent.” - Sandipan Deb, India Today.
“A masterful, telling story that brings to light tribal and land rights, the destruction of a culture when land is seized, and the complexities of old age and grief…” - Urvashi Bahuguna, Open.
