Rana Dasgupta is the author of two acclaimed novels. In "Tokyo Cancelled" he imagines 13 strangers stranded in an airport where they huddle by their baggage and tell fantastic tales. His novel "Solo" has been described as a “’philharmonic’ novel that reminds us why we will always need to tell the extraordinary stories of people’s ordinary lives.” Dasgupta is a Fellow in History in October.
