Indian authors are selling at the World Book Fair, reports the Times of India today. Why wouldn't they, you may ask, but ayways, here's the report:
Said Arati Mishra, a young lecturer from a south Delhi college who had come to browse at the fair, There are very interesting books in many of the publishers stalls, which suprisingly turned out to be written by Indians. Ive picked up a couple like First Love (Brinda Charry) and the Delhi Noir, part of the Noir series. Ive also bought Cyrus Broachas new novel. Mishra wasnt the only one interested in the desi stock. According to Lipika Bhushan of Harper Collins, a substantial part of the total sales 25-30 % has been from Indian authors this fair season.
