Book title: The Accidental Apprentice
Author: Vikas Swarup
Publisher: Simon & Schuster
In a session during the DSC Jaipur Literature Festival 2013, author Vikas Swarup revealed that he finished writing his first novel, ‘Q&A’ in just two months. His third book, ‘The Accidental Apprentice’ however, took him a full one year and a half to write. “You can get lucky only once!”, says Vikas who after having done a polyphonic narrative in his second book, ‘Six Suspects’, wanted to revert to a strong first person voice, that too with a female as its central character.
