Nilanjana S Roy: P Lal and the Writer's Workshop story
The impact of Writers Workshop cannot be measured by its 3,000-odd titles, or by the influence it once wielded as a publishing houseIn the homes of Indian writers of a certain generation, there’ll always be the Writer’s Workshop shelf, given over to hand-bound books, the cloth borders taken from Orissa saris, the title often hand-calligraphed. You don’t find them in bookstores that often these days, but there was a time when Writer’s Workshop represented, in effect, the sum total of the aspirations of Indians writing in English.
