Author information

Gautam Bhatia is probably better known as an author than the path-breaking architect that he is—a despairing architect. Having written humorously about architecture (Punjabi Baroque), the humour lapses into satire (Malaria Dreams) and, as India began its hideous urban reconstruction, both humour and satire have deepened into despair. His intervening books, particularly his work on Laurie Baker and the intimate autobiography of his profession, A Moment In Architecture, describe what might have been. In Lie, Bhatia has travelled down the linking road between describing people and describing architecture and produced a graphic novel that pictorially depicts post-independence India.
