The Ubud Writers and Readers Festival (UWRF) has announced a partnership with the world’s leading literary award for South Asian writing, the DSC Prize for South Asian Literature.

According to the UWRF organisers, the partnership will commence with Ubud Writers & Readers Festival 2014, and will involve the commitment to bring each year’s winner to the Festival in Ubud, Bali. In 2014, the festival will host acclaimed author Cyrus Mistry who won the DSC Prize 2014.

Derived from a true story, Cyrus Mistry’s extraordinary DSC Prize-winning novel Chronicle of a Corpse Bearer is a moving account of tragic love affair involving the near invisible community of Parsi corpse bearers whose job it is to carry bodies of the deceased to the Towers of Silence.
