This book takes a deep dive into the world of one of Hindi literature’s pioneers – Nirmal Verma. Vineet Gill explores the scattered elements of the Sahitya Akademi Award winner’s life, viewing them as ingredients that went into the making of the writer. As Gill attempts to understand Nirmal Verma’s life and work, he finds that the personal and the literary are, on some level, inseparable.
“If you are looking to understand how Verma converted loneliness and restlessness into a deep existential battle, read this sensitive account of a writer who never found a home anywhere in the world, not even in his own.” - The Tribune
