Ten Indian writers have been on the short list for the Booker prize since it began in 1968. Join me in exploring some of these great works of fiction. To begin, we will consider the historical background of post-Gandhi India reading some of Ramachandra Guha's impressive India after Gandhi (2007). Some of the writers we will consider are: Amitav Ghosh, Kiran Desai, Indra Shina, Jhumpha Lahiri, Salman Rushdie, Arvind Adiga, Thrity Umrigar, Neel Mukherjee, Sunjeev Sahata.
Carolyn Murray, Carolyn.firstname.lastname@example.org, I have been in love with India since the late 1960s when I took up yoga and meditation. My deep interest in Hinduism and Buddhism led me to travel there twice in the 1980s. I have read Indian novels ever since.
