#AmitavaKumar is an Indian author, journalist and professor of English at Vassar College. His latest novel, A Time Outside This Time, tackles issues of fake news and politics in a post-truth era.

In this interview with Manisha Pande, Amitava talks about the role of fiction in the current political climate, the phenomenon of #fakenews, and why everyone needs to keep a record of what’s happening today.

“#Journalism doesn't necessarily put the pressure on people to be inventive,” he explains. “It puts pressure on them to be scrupulous.”
