A few years ago Chandan Sengupta decided to enter a competition that the BWC had hoped to have as a nation-wide contest open to all writers writing in English in Bahrain. The only guidelines were the story had to be based in Bahrain and under 30,000 words.
For a number of reasons that competition didn’t materialise. But it was in an attempt to have a viable entry for it, that Chandan sat down to write what eventually grew into his first full-length novel – Land of Two Seas. The book is being launched in its print edition on Friday, 19th February at 11:00 am at City Centre Mall in Bahrain. Thereafter it will be available at the bookstore’s various outlets in Bahrain.
