Hutch Crossword shortlist

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



Bougainvillea House

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.


  1. Neat work..glad i came by
    like your author interviews in particular

  2. I hope Chandra wins. Sacred Games is brilliant

  3. Just wanted to ask 1 thing..
    Your blog has a very high PR (6). Why dont you put google ads on your site. Most of bloggers do it(indiauncut)

  4. Hey now that you guys seem to be interested in the books and the authors, you must try and make it to the awards... I hear its on Feb 21st and aprntly one can pick up invites at Crossword Kemps Corner by 16th Feb!
