Sampurna Chattarji is a writer, editor, translator and teacher with twenty-one publications to her credit. These include Space Gulliver: Chronicles of an Alien (HarperCollins 2015, 2020), which she wrote during her Charles Wallace India Trust writing residency at the University of Kent, Canterbury; her short story collection about Bombay/Mumbai Dirty Love (Penguin 2013); and her translation of Sukumar Ray’s poetry and prose Wordygurdyboom! (Puffin Classics 2008). Her translation of Joy Goswami’s prose poems After Death Comes Water (Harper Perennial, 2021) has been lauded as a recreation of the Bangla originals in ‘a living voice, as inventive and vivid as the English of Joyce’.
