Navaria in Pankaj Mishra’s best list

113-1364_imgPankaj Mishra includes Ajay Navaria’s Unclaimed Terrain in the short list of the best books he has read in 2013. ‘The writers and critics on the best books of 2013’ is an eclectic list compiled by the Guardian. Pankaj describes Navaria’s prose as one hinting “at the yet unrevealed depth and diversity of Indian literatures”.

Since Unclaimed Terrain occupies the space between revelation and hiding, diversity and dispersal, ‘untouched’ would be an even better description.
