Writers aren’t intellectuals, they needn’t give opinion on everything: Malayalam writer S Hareesh
The fictional worlds that S Hareesh creates are resplendent with characters of all hues and shades. Neither author nor his characters believe in absolute political correctness. He waded into controversy with Meesha, but the debut novel’s English translation, Moustache, went on to win the prestigious JCB Prize. Hareesh talks to TNIE about his creative pursuits, politics, and take on Kerala society.
