Such a strange, happy moment: when you're ready (almost) to let go of the book you've been writing for the last four years.

Sent Black River, my Delhi novel, to my agent this week. A sense of great relief that it's done, but also a sadness other writers will understand, as you prepare to leave the world you've been obsessed by for so many years.


@nilanjanaroy Also, the exit is temporary. Just think of how many of us will storm through the gates to enter the world once the book is out, all the while dragging you back in there with us. 😬
