Q&A with Vikas Swarup

The surprise hit movie Slumdog Millionaire, is nominated for Best Picture, Best Director and six other Oscars, is based on the book Q&A by Vikas Swarup. The Wall Street Journal does its own Q&A with the author today.

The book had very modest sales in hardcover, but the  tie-in paperback, re-titled to match the movie now has 100,000 copies in print.

Swarup has a second novel in the works, Six Suspects, which will be released here in late ’09 or ’10 (it’s already been pubbed in the UK), from his new publisher, Thomas Dunne/St. Martins.
