Anuradha Roy's Sleeping On Jupiter wins the DSC Prize for South Asian Literature 2016.

16th January, 2016

Anuradha Roy has won the prestigious DSC Prize for South Asian Literature 2016 for her novel, Sleeping on Jupiterpublished by Hachette India in 2015.  The award was announced at the Fairway Galle Literary Festival in Sri Lanka. The author was felicitated with the trophy and an award of US $ 50,000 by Hon. Ranil Wickremesinghe, Prime Minister of Democratic Socialist Republic of Sri Lanka.

Anuradha Roy's book was in competition with five shortlisted contemporaries this year, which included:

Akhil Sharma's Family Life (Faber & Faber, UK),

K.R. Meera's Hangwoman (Translated by J Devika; Penguin, India),

Mirza Waheed's The Book of Gold Leaves (Viking/Penguin India),

Neel Mukherjee's  The Lives of Others (Vintage/Penguin Random House, UK)

and Raj Kamal Jha's She Will Build Him a City (Bloomsbury, India).

Speaking on the occasion, Mark Tully on behalf of the jury said “We had a shortlist of six outstanding books. Their excellence made our task particularly difficult. We chose Sleeping on Jupiter by Anuradha Roy because of its elegance, flair and readability. It raises many issues succinctly and with commendable economy of words. The South Asian setting is described faithfully and evocatively. Among the issues raised are the power of memory and myth, religious hypocrisy, sexuality, abuse and other forms of violence. The novel contains powerful portraits of both major and minor characters. We believe this book will be a source of inspiration to other writers.”

Marking the historic win on social media, author Anuradha Roy said,  "I feel honoured and overjoyed that the judges picked my book. And deeply grateful to my publishers, Maclehose Press and Hachette India, for being behind the book so solidly."

Anuradha's previous works include An Atlas of Impossible Longing and The Folded Earth. While An Atlas of Impossible Longing has been translated in a number of languages and was named by World Literature Today as one of the sixty essential books on India, The Folded Earth won the Economist Crossword Prize for Fiction and was nominated for several prestigious awards including the D.S.C.
