The Killing of an Author has been described as a nonfiction publishing thriller, a wild roller coaster ride, and as having "a sense of humour from start to end." It is the true story of small town Indian boy pursuing an American Dream: to become a novelist. He reaches America to make amazing discoveries, and meets John Irving, Kurt Vonnegut, three Nobel Prizewinners, Arthur Miller, and the world's most powerful editor. The story of his quixotic quest for freedom, for unedited, uncensored acceptance of who he is exactly the way he is: it is gripping and instructive for writers as well as general readers who are often taken in by myths about writers and publishing. With its subversive humor, is both a picture and an indictment of the international literary Establishment.

Richard Crasta's first novel, The Revised Kama Sutra, has been published in ten countries and seven languages

The Killing of an Author tells a story that has been described as "laugh-out-loud funny", "an act of bravery", and as possessing "integrity." It is the third book of Crasta's Freedom Trilogy.

"Crasta has a sense of humour which he maintains from the start to the end. Funny, sad, and eye-opening. . . .We need more writers like him." --The Deccan Chronicle

"You are funny and delightful . . . and nowhere are you too heavy to carry. I've never read anyone like you. I laugh, I ache, I smile, I cry - but never close the book without that smile surfacing."--Sheelagh Grenon, Canada

"More than a book . . . an act of bravery."--Review
