Pankaj Mishra: Run and Hide

MWF Digital

One of India’s most important thinkers, Pankaj Mishra (Age of Anger, From the Ruins of Empire) makes his triumphant return to fiction with Run and Hide. Taking on caste, class and the toll of ruthless ambition, it follows three friends bound by a desire for self-reinvention, roaming from the foothills of the Himalayas to the penthouses of London in a ‘spectacular, illuminating work of fiction’ (Jennifer Egan). Tasneem Chopra finds out what drew Mishra back to fiction after a two-decade hiatus.

Online | Available on demand from 8 September
