Reader profile: Nikesh Shukla

Joining the October 21st Bands & Books lineup we are pleased to announce the delightful Nikesh Shukla:
Nikesh Shukla is the author of the Costa First Novel Award-shortlisted novel, 'Coconut Unlimited' ('...a riot of cringeworthy moments made real by Shukla's beautifully observed characters and talent for teen banter.' Metro) and the Channel 4 Comedy Lab 'Kabadasses' starring Jack Doolan, Josie Long and Shazad Latif. His writing has featured on BBC2, Radio 4, and BBC Asian Network. He has performed at Royal Festival Hall, Book Club Boutique, Soho Theatre, The Big Chill and Latitude. He likes Spider-man comics. A lot.

In true Bands & Books style, we bullied Nikesh into telling us his favourite bands:

TV On the Radio, Public Enemy, Radiohead, Das Racist, De La Soul, A Tribe Called Quest, Jeffrey Lewis, Emmy the Great, Riz MC, Engine Earz Experiment, The Moldy Peaches, Cornershop, Outkast, 

We made a mixtape of the above for your listening pleasure!
Nikesh joins the October 21st Bands & Books lineup alongside  We Used To Make Things and several more top drawer acts to be announced shortly!
