Richard Crasta is the author of twelve books and the father of three sons. He was born and grew up in India and moved to America to become a writer. His first novel, "The Revised Kama Sutra," was received with critical acclaim, described as "very funny" by Kurt Vonnegut, and published in 10 countries and in 7 languages.
Richard's books include fiction, nonfiction, essays, autobiography, humor, and satire, and have been described as "exuberant," "courageous," "hilarious," and "going where no Indian writer has gone before."
His 12 books include "Impressing the Whites," "The Killing of an Author," and the subversive anthology of humor, "I Will Not Go the F**k to Sleep" (a non-parental version with more political humor has been published under the title "The Empire Bites Back"); he also edited and added essays to his father's memoir, "Eaten by the Japanese: The Memoir of an Unknown Indian Prisoner of War." His motives for writing include a passion for justice and free expression and a love of laughter.
Richard has traveled widely in North America, Asia, and Europe, and though technically a New York resident, spends most of his time in Asia working on seven books in progress. His likes include a wide range of music, movies, theater, and travel.
