Githa Hariharan grew up in Bombay and Manila, and has lived in the USA. She now lives in New Delhi, where she has worked as an editor in a publishing house. Her second book, a collection of short stories called The Art of Dying, is also published by Penguin India. She began by responding to the division that was a point of discussion among judges, the difference between large social novels and the intimacy of more domestic centred books.
