PEAKING TIGER TITLE ONE FOOT ON THE GROUND BY SHANTA GOKHALE WINS THE CROSSWORD BOOK AWARD ENGLISH NON-FICTION (JURY)

Speaking Tiger is proud to announce that Shanta Gokhale’s book One Foot on the Ground: A Life Told through the Body won the Crossword Book Award in the English Non-fiction (Jury) category at their 17th edition held at Opera House, Mumbai.
In this unusual, extraordinary autobiography, Shanta Gokhale—writer, translator and one of India’s most illuminating cultural commentators—traces the arc of her life over eight decades through the progress of her body, as it grows, matures and begins to wind down. Starting with her birth in 1939—in philosophic silence, till the doctor’s slap on her bottom made her bawl—she recounts her childhood, youth and middle and old age in chapters built around the many elements and processes of the physical self: tonsils and adenoids, breasts and misaligned teeth; childbirth and fluctuating weight, cancer and bunions. And through these memories emerge others, less visible but just as defining: a carefree childhood growing up in a progressive Marathi household in Mumbai’s Shivaji Park; the pleasures, in adolescence, of badminton, Kathak and hairdressing; the warmth of friends and an almost love in cold England; finding and losing a mate—twice—and bringing up her children as a single parent; the great thrill of her first translation from Marathi into English; nursing her mother, dying of cancer, as she would a baby; surviving cancer herself, and writing her second novel through the recovery.
Told with effortless humour and candour, One Foot on the Ground is the story of a life full of happiness, heartbreak, wonder and acceptance. It will rank among the finest personal histories written in India.

Speaking Tiger is proud to announce that Upamanyu Chatterjee’s book The Assassination of Indira Gandhi: The Collected Stories has been shortlisted for The Hindu Prize 2019Fiction category.
For over three decades, Upamanyu Chatterjee has been an utterly distinctive and daring literary voice, with few equals among contemporary writers of fiction. In the twelve long stories that comprise this volume, he investigates, as only he can, the absurd comedy and the grand horrors of the human condition. The book opens with his most recent story, written in 2018, which follows Thomas Roe, the much feted English Ambassador to the court of Jahangir, as he bumbles through a subcontinent far larger than his imagination can accommodate; and it concludes with the title story, written in 1985, in which a young Sikh sequestered in his parents’ home in Mussoorie, and debilitated by jaundice and ennui, listens disinterestedly to news of Indira Gandhi’s assassination and the massacre of Sikhs in Delhi.

Speaking Tiger is delighted to announce that Nandita Haksar’s book The Flavours of Nationalism: Recipes of Love, Hate and Friendship will be awarded Book of the Year at the LF Epicurean Guild Awards 2020. The ceremony is scheduled to be held on 7th February 2020 at ITC Grand Central, Mumbai.
“Nandita Haksar’s book made the cut on account of being pertinent to our times and above all, asking that uncomfortable question: how can a country that won’t eat together, stay united?”, said a representative of LFEGA.
