Its time for Atta Galatta-Bangalore Literature Festival Book Prize 2017!

The winner of the category of non- fiction is Lone Fox Dancing- Ruskin Bonds autobiography.

In this brilliantly readable autobiography, one of Indias greatest writers shows us the roots of everything he has written. He begins with a dream and a haunting, before taking us to an idyllic childhood in Jamnagar by the Arabian Sea, where he composed his first poem to New Delhi in the early 1940s, where he found material for his first short story. It was a brief period of happiness that ended with his parents separation and the untimely death of his beloved father. His search for companionship and security, undercut by a fierce independence and a tendency for risk-taking, would inform every choice he made for the rest of his life. Full of anecdotes, warmth and gentle wit, Lone Fox Dancing is a book of quiet and enduring magic, much like Ruskin Bond himself.

Join us on the 28th and 29th of October at Lalit Ashok to witness the literary zeal of Bangalore. Various notable titles such as this in a multitude of genres will be available for a guaranteed good read. Come by and grab your copy!
