Details: Product Description It is the book launch of best in show: the peacock book of indo–anglian fiction and John Nair, managing editor, peacock India, is throwing the grandest party of his life. The whole of literary India is in attendance. All the literary stars are here: the Seth, the rays, the chaudharis, among many, many others. And into this haloed gathering walks Nair’s old friend, Ritwik Ray, the slightly off-kilter Bard of Patna, with a new novel in hand: God se Chowk. Mayhem ensues. Set in the Goldfish bowl of the new Delhi publishing world, The time of the peacock provides an accurate yet compassionate reading of the Indian literary scene—both Bhabha and metropolitan.

An omnibus edition of his fiction Ritwik & Hriday: Tales of the City, Tales of the Town was published in 2016. He works as an editorial consultant in New Delhi.
