About the authors

Sarnath Banerjee has written four books of graphic fiction. Corridor (Penguin, 2004), The Barn Owl’s Wonderous Capers (Penguin, 2007), The Harappa Files (Harper Collin, 2011) and All Quiet in Vikaspuri ( Harper Collins, 2015). Through these books he has explored the nature of the Indian middle-class and its transformation from Nehruvian socialism to full-fledged neoliberalism. The themes in these books included power, masculinity, bureaucracy, rumour, scandal, trade, class-system, urban sprawl, meritocracy, religion and the uncanny.
