The Swiss Family Robinson.
First memory of writing and what was it on?
A story based on four sisters of mixed marriage who hanged themselves in a small town in Madhya Pradesh. It came out of something I read in the New York Times. I was nineteen, and at Amherst.
Three things people will be surprised to know about Aatish Taseer?

3) I once went skinny dipping in a pool in Buckingham Palace.
What would the title of your biography be?
'I think the emotions I most closely associate with music are excitement and exploration. There’s so much to be delved into creatively that I never feel at a loss when I sit down at my laptop to make music.'
