Odysseus At Work

If you thought David Davidar has been lying low, waiting for the sexual harassment saga to be forgotten, think again. Instead, he’s put the experience to good use by churning out a novel about a subject he knows well: the international world of publishing. A Canadian publisher, McClelland and Stewart, has acquired the rights for Davidar’s Ithaca, hailing it as “his most ambitious novel to date”. This is one novel Penguin India will probably have to skip bidding for, given how they had sacked him. To find out if it has anything about “a vision in pink sipping a champagne cocktail”, you’ll have to wait till autumn next year.
