About the Book: Madras on My Mind: A City in Stories

Once upon a time by the sea, there was a story and another and another and some wandered into these pages to make up a city. So meet, among others, a travel guide who falls for a French tourist, a rice merchant with Kollywood dreams, a god whose editor proves elusive, a portly musical lawyer caught in a noir plot, and a man in search of family in the Great Madras Flood. Find yourself, among other places, in Town, at that gastronomic oxymoron, the Udipi caf , in Velachery, looking for pot or maybe for love, on Kaanum Pongal day all across Madras, even in a fast car on East Coast Road, fleeing the city till it lures you back with its lovely lies. Its all here: the salt in the breeze, the eternal summer, the swing of the sea. Its Madras on your mind.

About the Authors: Chitra Viraraghavan, Krishna Shastri Devulapalli

Chitra Viraraghavan has worked in academic publishing, taught English, and is a book editor, school textbook writer and author of The Americans: A Novel. She is working on her second book, a work of historical fiction. Delhi Thatha, a childrens book about a philosopher, is forthcoming.

Krishna Shastri Devulapalli is a humour writer, cartoonist, columnist and the quintessential Madras-Chennai novelist. Ice Boys in Bell-bottoms is a chronicle of a 1970s childhood in the city while Jump Cut is a seriocomic thriller with the Madras film industry as its backdrop. His comic epistolary play, Dear Anita, sends up the Indian publishing industry, as does a work of non-fiction, How to Be a Literary Sensation. His most recent novel is The Sentimental Spy.
