Amit Chaudhuri (b. 1962), was born in Calcutta and brought up in Bombay. He completed his graduation from University College, London. He now lives in Calcutta.
His writing is understated and his stories are usually devoid of major upheavals, but are set in the backdrop of changes setting in gradually. The larger questions of life are raised and answered through the seemingly insignificant.
He has also edited an anthology of Indian writing in The Picador Book of Modern Indian Literature.
Amit Chaudhuri won the Betty Trask Prize, Commonwealth Writers Prize and the Sahitya Akademi Award (2003).
