Amitava Kumar

Professor Amitava Kumar is the author of “The Blue Book,” published for 2022 by HarperCollins India. This new work is a writer’s journal, a mix of original artwork and journal entries from the Covid-19 pandemic that The Financial Express describes as “a landmark work of ‘self-writing'” by “one of the most acclaimed novelists of contemporary times.” As The Deccan Herald observes, “In Amitava Kumar’s hands, journaling is a steady account of the world around us, faintly tinged with melancholia and poignancy.”
