The phenomenal success of Ravan And Eddie after its publication in 1994 made its author Kiran Nagarkar one of India’s most celebrated literary names. He followed up this novel with Cuckold three years later, for which he won the Sahitya Akademi award.
The story of a Maratha Hindu and a Catholic boy growing up together in a Mumbai chawl, Ravan and Eddie was an incisive look into the city’s chawl life. Unrelenting in its grimness but laced with everyday humour and a generous amount of pathos, the story resonated with readers in a way that few city-based works had.
Today, Nagarkar will unveil the third book in the Ravan and Eddie trilogy – Rest in Peace. The book will be unveiled at Max Mueller Bhavan, Kala Ghoda. Actor Shabana Azmi will launch the book and read from it, while journalist Naresh Fernandes will lead a critique on the book.
The event is free and open to all. The launch starts at 6 pm, Gallerie Max Mueller.
