The Zee Jaipur Literature Festival, famed as the ‘greatest literary show on earth’, is coming to London. I am taking part in this year’s festival held at the British Library in mid June. I’ll have a session on Saturday the 15th, the details as below, followed by another session about China and India. I’d be thrilled to see you there.
