Event Details : 'Writers, Etc.' Vikram Seth in discussion with Sam Miller.
It is with great enthusiasm that we bring you a new forum at Alliance française de Delhi! On 3rd February we look forward to welcoming you to the inaugural evening of Writers, Etc.
Writers, Etc is our literary platform: a space where the written word gets primacy, where written ideas and their practitioners can interact with each other and the general public, coming together to ask pertinent questions and seek their answers: what role does literature play in contemporary societies? How do writers see their responsibilities vis-à-vis the public and, turning that over, how do we see writers? How has the written word adapted to its place among the growing pantheon of varied and addictive forms of cultural transmission? The aim is to encourage a discovery, unencumbered by genre, of all the written oeuvres, ranging from living legends to new and emerging talent.
Our inaugural event will begin with one of the most powerful voices in contemporary Indian writing: Vikram Seth. He needs little by way of introduction; his second novel A Suitable Boy (1993) literally reconfigured the rules of Indian writing. His subsequent works revealed the sheer power of meticulous prose with a poetic lyricism; firmly establishing his reputation as one of the most original writers of a generation.
