Why don't you write something I might read? Reading, Writing & Arrhythmia
AUTHOR: Suresh Menon
What do Ved Mehta, Gabriel García Márquez and Agatha Christie have in common—apart from being among the most celebrated writers in the world, that is? Their ability to hook the discerning reader and never let go. What have some of these great writers said of their own work? What, for that matter, makes a writer, or a book, ‘great’ and canonical while others that sold millions of copies in their own lifetimes fade into oblivion? How much of a reader’s appreciation of a novel or an essay stems from their own early reading practices and friendships? And why, oh why, do they not give the Nobel to the writers who most deserve it?
These are some of the thoughts that center this eclectic collection of reflections about writers and writing. They seek out the pleasures and the techniques, the spaces and the memories, the little moments and the life-changing sentences that encompass and enrich a reader’s life.
