Wanderlust and its accompanying passions are central to Siddharth’s journeys as a writer; they imbue a richness of context and character to much of his fiction, while stirring his non-fiction with a distinctive timbre. His poetry and stories appear in a wide range of publications and literary journals; his travel and culture obsessions, meanwhile, are frequent features too.

Siddharth’s debut novel, Letters from an Indian Summer (Fingerprint), has met with consistent critical acclaim since its release in the winter of 2014. The year 2017 marked the release of a short-story collection – The Sacred Sorrow of Sparrows (Niyogi).

Teaser:
“Cities breed their streets; streets duly birth their designated human beings; human beings, accordingly, give rise to stories; and in a sense, perhaps this is how fables come into the world. Using a hypnotic, multi-textured palette of free verse, prose poetry, flash fiction, flash non-fiction, and homage, The Wanderlust Conspiracy is both an ode to the lure of horizons infused with bliss, and a riotous hat tip to the predilections of human hearts – blazing away with lust and chasing after that consequential rush, as they are. Across sixty-one individual pieces, Siddharth Dasgupta weaves poetry and poetic narratives with the dexterity of an astrologer summoning the stars.”
