- Karthik Narasimhan
If you had to describe your work to an Indian audience, how would you describe it?
I don't know if I'd be comfortable talking about my work. I suppose I might say quirky. It's a bit quirky, a bit humorous. Ultimately, I want to make readers feel better and more hopeful. I don't like depressing literature. Going back to the Narayan novels - you really feel sympathy for the people involved. It's a very simple ambition, nothing very grand…
I'll take that any day, thank you.
