C Y Gopinath


My first novel, The Book of Answers, is shortlisted for the 2012 Commonwealth Book Prize.

I have been a writer as far as I can remember, and began writing fiction in 2005. I also make movies, direct theatre, compose, cook and travel.

I can't wait to get up in the morning.

Patros' bland life is shattered when he inherits a book with answers to the world's problems. He sells it off — but it reappears in the hands of a politician and a godman, who pass draconian laws citing the book as their divine source. As his country plunges into chaos, Patros emerges as a reluctant hero. A sharp satire about how the corrupt the powerful can manipulate an unreflective society.
