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.
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.
Mira Jacob is a novelist, memoirist, illustrator, and cultural critic. Her graphic memoir Good Talk: A Memoir in Conversations was shortlisted for the National Book Critics Circle Award, longlisted for the PEN Open Book Award, named a New York Times Notable Book, as well as a best book of the year by Time, Esquire, Publisher’s Weekly, and Library Journal. It is currently in development as a television series.
