An exhaustive list of mistakes a writer should never make (for example: insisting on total freedom of expression), and an Encyclopedia of the Dark side of publishing and writing, “The Killing of an Author” is a true story set mainly in New York, and partly in London and New Delhi. With cameo appearances by literary and publishing stars, and a relentless storytelling pace, this book has an element of literary thriller to it, one climactic moment being when the world's most powerful editor tells the author: "I must admit I have been haunted by your novel!"

"What comes out is his integrity. Not many people about whom you can say this. If Richard succeeds, we shall all succeed."--Kuldip Nayar, eminent Indian author/editor/statesman.

"Crasta has a sense of humour which he maintains from the start to the end. Funny, sad, and eye-opening. . .Dares to be different. 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."--Lulu Review
