  • Want some motivation for your Monday? How about a new author announcement for the 2019 Mildura Writers Festival? We start this week with Amitava Kumar. 
Amitava is a writer and journalist. He was born in Ara, India, and grew up in the nearby town of Patna, famous for its corruption, crushing poverty, and delicious mangoes. Kumar is the author of several books of nonfiction and two novels. His prize-winning book ‘A Foreigner Carrying in the Crook of His Arm a Tiny Bomb’ (2010) was described by The New York Times as a “perceptive and soulful … meditation on the global war on terror and its cultural and human repercussions.” His latest book, ‘Immigrant, Montana: A Novel’ (2018) was named one of the books of the year by The New Yorker and included in the list of notable books of the year by The New York Times. Kumar lives in Poughkeepsie, in upstate New York, where he is Helen D. Lockwood Professor of English at Vassar College. Professor Kumar has been honored with residencies at Yaddo, the Norman Mailer Center, and Bellagio; he has also been awarded a Guggenheim Fellowship as well as a Ford Fellowship in Literature from United States Artists.
