Pankaj Mishra: The Personal is Always Political
Sponsored by
University of Edinburgh

A prolific, award-winning writer, Pankaj Mishra has kept us waiting two decades for his second novel; this event, with one of our bravest and most insightful contemporary writers, is not to be missed. Seeking a way out of his small railway town, Arun enrols in the prestigious Indian Institute of Technology, where he meets two friends. Their great success, and its cost, is the subject of Mishra’s incendiary Run and Hide.
