Purabi Das lives outside of Toronto and commutes daily to the city to work. Writing has been a passion all her life, followed closely by reading, traveling and watching cultural shows from around the world. She has a B.A. in English Literature from India. Currently, she is focusing her efforts on a third fiction book, as well as a collection of short stories. She takes inspiration from life around her on the streets of Toronto, her childhood growing up in a sprawling house in a small town in Bihar and spending summer vacations at her grandfather’s in Calcutta. One summer when she was in grade nine she read How Green Was My Valley by Richard Llewellyn and The Herries Chronicle by Hugh Walpole and they have stayed within her ever since.
