At Random

Though Random House India hung out its shingle in June 2005, they seem to have maintained an extremely low profile since then, with not even one title being published here so far. Well, all that's about to change soon, according to this Express report which states that they've "signed Jhumpa Lahiri for an as yet untitled novel and a collection of short stories. Both will be released in India later this year, along with an author tour, while the international editions have been bought by publishing house Knopf." Also on the cards is Abha Dawesar's That Summer in Paris, and general manager Vivek Ahuja "says that the publishing house is thinking of making a foray into vernacular publishing, bringing out books in Hindi and Malayalam as well as other Indian languages."
