Zee Jaipur Literature Festival 2015 will see a coup of sorts. It has got Paul Theroux and VS Naipaul to attend, making this the first time (barring one very public shaking of hands nearly three years ago) that the two writers, friends before a very acrimonious falling out in 1996, will share the same platform.
“It’s our big blockbuster,” said Sanjoy Roy, producer of JLF. “It’s the biggest news of the literary decade,” he added. “It’s taken us five years of work with Sir Vidia and Nadira. They were very gracious.” The festival will be held from January 21 to 25, 2015.
