Join us for the book launch of ‘A Flutter in the Colony’ (Penguin Random House-SEA, 2022) featuring author Sandeep Ray in conversation with Gareth Richards, Director at Gerakbudaya. Sandeep Ray will speak about what inspired this book, his career from a documentary filmmaker to a historian turned writer.
Shuttling in time and temper between the politics of a small Malayan town and the anguished years of pre-Partition Bengal, between the Malayan Emergency and Direct Action Day, between indifference and lust, ‘A Flutter in the Colony’ is a tender, resonant chronicle of a family struggling to remain together in the twilight of Empire in Asia.
This event is over, and registration is now closed.
