Anantaram Varatharajan Ciao tutti, buongiorno!

This is Ananth, PhD student at Politecnico. I'm glad to have found this group (my thanks to the curators). I recently moved to Torino and have dearly missed the esoteric chats on books! Please sign me up for any discussion/meetings. If you have a thought on any book, do get in touch. I'm all ears :)


PS: I notice that all preceding discussions have been in Italian but am afraid my vocabulary is perhaps more shy than ignorant at the moment.

Hi, Anantatam. welcome to this group!

Anantaram Varatharajan Hi Margherita, thanks, glad to hear!
I'm from India but have been abroad since the last 5 years moving around Europe.
Oh, if you're interested in Indian novelists, may I recommend Serious Men by Manu Joseph (Humor/Satire), The Hungry Tide by Amitov Gosh, A Fine Balance by Rohinton Mistry (a heavy and compelling read with twinge!, perhaps not an idle choice for a sunny beach)...
