Shades of Alchemy

Author and editor Manu Joseph's The Illicit Happiness of Strangers has caught the fancy of readers in Holland. The Dutch translation is eighth on the national bestseller list. It is fourth in fiction, the top three being E.L. James's 50 Shades of Gray, 50 Shades of Freed and 50 Shades Darker. There have been instances in the past too where European readers have warmed up to a book by Indian authors much more than folks here. A few years ago, Tarun Tejpal's debut novel The Alchemy of Desire made waves in France and went on to win the Le Prix Mille Pages award.
