Publisher Naveen Kishore on theatre, the Indian reader, and what drives him to promote the arts Amongst one of the most universal of emotions is the strange wistfulness that emanates from books, both old and new; from their sturdy or worn-out spines and the comforting smell of their pages. Inspired by this shared experience and the joy of making books available, Naveen Kishore, founder and managing trustee of Seagull Books began his small publishing venture in Kolkata. Today, 35 years later, Seagull has divisions in New York and London, and worldwide English-language publishing rights for works by Jean-Paul Sartre, Paul Celan, Ingeborg Bachmann, Mahasweta Devi along with 2012 Nobel Laureate Mo Yan, and 2015 Man Booker International Prize winner, László Krasznahorkai, among many others. Kishore’s publishing legacy is transcendent.
