Rana Dasgupta

Rana Dasgupta (born November 5 1971 in Canterbury, England) is a British-Indian writer. He grew up in Cambridge, England and studied at Balliol College, Oxford, the Conservatoire Darius Milhaud in Aix-en-Provence, and the University of Wisconsin-Madison. He lives in Delhi, India.

His first novel, "Tokyo Cancelled" (2005), was an examination of the forces and experiences of globalization. Billed as a modern-day "Canterbury Tales", thirteen passengers stuck overnight in an airport tell thirteen stories from different cities in the world, stories that resemble contemporary fairytales, mythic and surreal. The tales add up to a broad exploration of 21st century forms of life, which includes billionaires, film stars, migrant labourers, illegal immigrants and sailors. [ [http://books.guardian.co.uk/departments/generalfiction/story/0,6000,1447613,00.html "Guardian" feature on Rana Dasgupta] ] "Tokyo Cancelled" was shortlisted for the 2005 John Llewellyn Rhys Prize.

Dasgupta's upcoming novel, "Solo", set primarily in Bulgaria, will appear in spring 2009.
