From Singapore Chitra Sankaran writes: ‘I wanted to let you know that the edited volume on your novels entitled History, Narrative and Testimony in Amitav Ghosh’s Fiction is finally out by SUNY Press. Please scroll down to see it featured in SUNY Spring collection. The initial responses to the volume have all been most positive. I am keeping my fingers crossed.’



Here is the Table of Contents:

Chitra adds: ‘In between my academic endeavours I managed to write a murder mystery novel set in Singapore and Tamil Nadu, India. It has been published by New Dawn Publishers, a UK firm that has been recently set up by a group of Creative Writing graduates from London. The book is being street launched this month. It is entitled Void of Reason. If you are in the mood to read a mystery novel by an Asian, please do pick it up, or alternatively, I could send you a copy.’

Evidently Void of Reason is flying off the shelves: it is already out of stock on Amazon!
