In 2007 came Un Lun Dun, his first novel for younger readers. His collection of short fiction, Looking for Jake and Other Stories, has been described by The Times Literary Supplement as "powerful tales of paranoid complicity". His latest novel, The City and The City, is in the mould of detective fiction but evokes a larger significance.

She has won prizes at the Prakriti poetry festival contest and the Open-Space Harper Collins poetry contest, and her poems are due to appear in Prakriti and Harper-Collins anthologies. She received a special jury commendation at the TFA Awards 2009.

Poorva Rajaram is a student of literature now interning with TimeOut, Bangalore in a bid to discover if journalism is for her. She loves reading feminist subtext into most literature and is a pop culture addict.
