Radio Interview with Anita Desai

The beautiful, melancholy world of Anita Desa








Anita Desai is one of India’s most celebrated and successful writers. Over the course of her career, which has spanned almost five decades, she has written 17 novels, novellas and children’s books. Desai has been nominated for the Man Booker Prize three times: in 1980 for Clear Light of Day, in 1984 for In Custody and in 1999 for Fasting, Feasting. She recently received Montreal’s Blue Metropolis International Literary Festival Grand Prix, a lifetime achievement award.

She writes with elegance and sensitivity about the collision of cultures. Her most recent work, a collection of novellas titled The Artist of Disappearance, features characters who have remained in India but are haunted by other lives.
