The White Tiger author on Shakespeare, Clive James and sulking over Michael Chabon
The book I am currently reading
Jonny Steinberg’s One Day in Bethlehem. He is one of my heroes. His books, carefully researched, lyrically composed, probe deep into his native South Africa, but end up illuminating the entire world. In his latest, he tries to reconstruct an apartheid-era crime to find out if an innocent man was sent to jail.
The book that changed my life
My mother’s copy of the collected works of William Shakespeare.
