Writing About Writing Andrew Sean Greer and Anita Nair in conversation with Prayaag Akbar

  • Char Bagh Jaipur India (map)

A fascinating conversation with two writers who have written about writers and the writing life.  Andrew Sean Greer’s relentless lampooning of the literary world , ‘Less’ won the 2018 Pulitzer prize for fiction. This novel about a novelist tells us about “the crazy quilt of a writer’s life: warm enough, though it never quite covers the toes." Anita Nair’s novel ‘Eating Wasps’ is about the unravelling story of a thirty-five year old writer who kills herself , a half century ago. In conversation with author Prayaag Akbar, they speak of the comedies and tragedies of the writing life , of the doubts and epiphanies in the constant struggle for experience and self expression, and what it means to be writing about writing.
