For our first event of 2023, we’re welcoming authors Deepti Kapoor and Mira Jacob in a deep and riveting conversation on Deepti’s new novel, Age of Vice. Hailed by Booker-Prize winning author Marlon James as “epic, crazy, shocking, mind-blowing, brutal, tender, heartbreaking,” Age of Vice is a lush and complex crime novel, a layered family saga, drawing inspiration from Kapoor’s experience living and working as a journalist in New Delhi.

Purchase a copy of Age of Vice online here. The book will ship on January 3, 2023.

Deepti Kapoor worked for several years as a journalist in New Delhi, after growing up in Northern India. The author of the novel Bad Character, she now lives in Portugal with her husband.
