The Hutch Crossword Book Award shortlists have been announced, and I’m especially pleased to see the inclusion of Rajorshi Chakraborty’s Or the Day Seizes You in the fiction list – it was one of my favourite reads (and favourite discoveries) of the year gone by. As it happens, I’ve read all the titles on the fiction shortlist, and also written about all of them on this blog – so here, self-indulgently, are the links to the relevant posts:
Or the Day Seizes You (interview with author here)
Sacred Games (author interview here)
The Inheritance of Loss
On the non-fiction list I’ve read three of the six titles, but only reviewed one on this blog: Sanjay Suri’s Brideless in Wembley.
On that note, off to Jaipur. Ta.
