On Sat. 3rd of December, Mumbai’s Biggest Literature Festival, Times LitFest, brings to you Charles Dantzig, a French author who delights his readers with his fluid style and his lively voice with serious undertones.

His original essays, lyrical poems that wear their seriousness lightly and liltingly, and novels whose brio is rivalled only by their inventiveness!


Charles Dantzig will participate in three sessions:
◘ 10:30am to 11:30am: I am Me, What’s it to You?
Representing a range of sexual orientations, Laxmi Narayan Tripathi, Hoshang Merchantand Gil Hovav. Katharina Poggendorf Kakar moderates.

◘ 1pm to 2pm: A Gadfly in the Literary Salon
In conversation with the Francophile Dileep Padgaonkar.

◘ 6:45pm to 7:45pm: In Hot Blood – Can passion get away with murder?

In discussion with ‘Mumbai Fables’ author Gyan Prakash and crime chronicler Hussain Zaidi.
