Vikram Chanda
Vikram Chandra was born and grew up in India. He divides his time between Mumbai and Berkeley where he teaches creative writing at the University of California.
Vikram Chanda Updated: 9.8.2010 In an essay entitled 'The Cult of Authenticity', Vikram Chandra responded ten years ago to criticism that his work was not truly 'Indian'. Hugh Chiverton asked him if he still faced the same questions.

Vikram Chandra's first novel, Red Earth and Pouring Rain (1995), was written over several years whilst he obtained an MA at John Hopkins University and an MFA at the University of Houston. It won both the Commonwealth Writers Prize for Best First Book and the David Higham Prize for Fiction.

Love and Longing in Bombay, a collection of short stories, was published in 1997 and won the Commonwealth Writers Prize for Best Book (Eurasia region) and was short-listed for the Guardian Fiction Prize. Sacred Games, his most recent novel, is a literary Indian crime thriller.
