Met Vikram Chandra for a breakfast interview yesterday. The totally mellow and down-to-earth author was in town because his maha-novel Sacred Games was a finalist for the National Book Critics Circle Award for fiction. The book is sodden with filmi references, just one more reason why I loved it.
More about the interview and the novel next.
(And no, Sacred Games didn’t win, but it was in some great company among the other nominees.)
