Elizabeth Chakrabarty is a South London based writer and academic. Her debut novel, LESSONS IN LOVE AND OTHER CRIMES was published last year by The Indigo Press. Inspired by Elizabeth’s personal experiences of a chilling race-hate crime, the novel is bookended by personal essays, exploring the insidious nature of racism, love, queerness, loneliness and obsession. It is an exceptional debut that will appeal to readers of Bernardine Evaristo’s Girl, Woman, Other and Sophie Ward’s Love and Other Thought Experiments.
