Recipient’s Statement for the SFRA Book Award 2020

Upamanyu Pablo Mukherjee

Thank you very much for this entirely unexpected and extraordinary honour. I wanted to quickly mention three groups of peoples and places in gratitude. First, SFRA and especially, the juries, who have been the keepers of the flame in more ways than one during these dark times. The thought of attempting a book like this would not have crossed my mind had it not been for many of you in this (virtual) gathering. Second, Warwick University and Liverpool University Press for being homes to some remarkable colleagues, students, editors, and publishers. Finally, the friends and family who did not survive the pandemic and are no longer here to share the world with me. This is a small and necessarily inadequate way of honouring you.
