Author: Siddhartha

Siddharth Dasgupta is an Indian poet and novelist. His first novel, Letters from an Indian Summer, has met with consistent critical acclaim since its release in late 2014. His literature has appeared in Cha, Sunstruck, Coldnoon, Burning House, and Kitaab, amongst others; his travel stories meanwhile dot the likes of Travel + Leisure, Conde Nast Traveller, Eat Stay Love, Harper's Bazaar, and Just Luxe. This year sees the release of a Short-Story Collection in the Indian Subcontinent and Southeast Asia, to begin with (to be duly offered up elsewhere to the first publisher who plies him with martinis). A wild hybrid of poetry is also in the works. On any given day, Siddharth can be found chasing after the fleeting gravity of words and the poetic resonance of wild hearts, both of which have proven to be the best of confidantes.
