A journey gone wrong is Gita Viswanath’s second novel, her first Twice it happened was published a few years ago. In both novels, she reveals her narrative range spanning multiple generations, each revealing its distinct culture and idiom. In fact, her first novel is more experimental than her second for the way it employs the epistolary mode of telling a story, and the use of dreams, voices, and visitations on a protagonist’s thirteen-day journey to the other world! A versatile writer, Viswanath has also published a book of non-fiction on military literature and Hindi war cinema, and a children’s book titled, Chidiya. Her poems, short stories, and articles have appeared in online journals and in print. Co-founder of an online film club, Talking films online, her two short films, Family across the Atlantic and Safezonerz are on YouTube.
