The Hindu Interview

   Posted by: aman   in Roll of Honour

Friends, I am really happy to post this interview that The Hindu has carried. As a writer one often writes in a vacuum but when one suddenly sees a brilliant review in an esteemed page one feels both humbled and excited. That is what had happened with ‘Sepia Leaves’ that Uday Balakrishnan had reviewed a couple of years back. That he followed up with this interview for ‘Roll of Honour’ pleases me no end. Thank you Uday.

‘A teacher of mine used to say: the mad are poets without language. Whether he is the stoic father in [my earlier novel] Sepia Leaves or the traumatised boys in Roll of Honour, whether it is schizophrenia or depression, my attempt is to extend storytelling to situations where language frequently fails to articulate reality.’
