Geek Sublime: Writing Fiction, Coding Software (Faber & Faber)
Geek Sublime: Writing Fiction, Coding Software (Faber & Faber)
Sunday, 16 March 2014

Vikram Chandra is the award-winning author of two acclaimed novels and a collection of short stories - and has been a computer programmer for almost as long as he has been a writer. In his extraordinary new book he looks at the connection between these two worlds of art and technology. Coders are obsessed with elegance and style, just as writers are, but do the words mean the same thing to both?
