Anuradha Roy's six favorite books

Anuradha Roy is the author of An Atlas of Impossible Longing and The Folded Earth, as well as Sleeping on Jupiter, which won the DSC Prize for Fiction 2016 and was longlisted for the Man Booker Prize 2015. Her latest novel is All the Lives We Never Lived.

One of Roy's six favorite books, as shared at The Week magazine:
The Dawn Watch by Maya Jasanoff (2017).

In this biography of Joseph Conrad, scholarship, biography, history, literary analysis, and travel are woven into a narrative so gripping that it reads like a novel. I hadn't thought shipping routes could be so fascinating.
