About Richard Crasta

Richard Crasta is the author of "The Revised Kama Sutra: A Novel" and 12 other books. "The Revised Kama Sutra" was described by Kurt Vonnegut as "very funny," and has been published in ten countries and in seven languages.

Richard's books include fiction, nonfiction, essays, autobiography, humor, and satire, and have a political edge. He is anti-censorship, non-pc, pro-laughter, pro-food (plus one beer a day), anti-pro-life, and anti- most other antis. His books have been described as "going where no Indian writer has gone before," and attempt to present an unedited, uncensored voice (James Joyce, Vladimir Nabokov, and Philip Roth are among the novelists who have inspired him.).

Richard was born and grew up in India, a member of India's Konkani-speaking Catholic minority. He moved to America to become a writer, and has traveled widely. Though, technically, still a New York resident, he spends most of his time in Asia working on seven books in progress and part-time as a freelance book editor.
