Famous writers are often reticent about how and why they write, how their ideas and themes develop or how their characters and plots emerge. They can be equally reserved about their personal histories. But in the hands of seasoned journalist and skilful interviewer Sunil Sethi, presenter of Just Books, NDTV s long-running weekend literary show, they open up in unexpected and fascinating ways. In this selection of thirty of his best interviews from Just Books, they speak freely and frankly about their craft, their life stories and the nature of their creative impulse. Featured here are literary giants, including Nobel laureates and Booker Prize winners; internationally acclaimed historians, biographers and philosophers; authors of best-selling thrillers, novels and travel books; and brilliant young trendsetters. Their conversations with Sethi are, in turn, reflective and incisive, witty and poignant, but always candid and intimate, as they provide rare insights into their inner lives and engagement with the world they inhabit. Each voice in this diverse collection is original, distinctive and revealing, as they cover the wide terrain of life and literature. This volume vividly brings alive each author s personality and work, ingeniously bridging the gap between reader and writer.
