On Sunday, June 15th from 12-2pm, join Left Coast Writers® Live on FCCFREE RADIO’s popular show, Lilycat on Stuff. Lilycat’s guests on Sunday will be Kunal Mukherjee and Jonathan Arnowitz. Kunal and Jonathan will be discussing their novels about coming of age and coming out.
Kunal Mukherjee is a San Francisco based poet and writer. Originally from West Bengal, he was raised in Hyderabad, India. He holds a Master’s degree in Physics, has done postgraduate work in Energy Studies and has worked as a restaurateur and a manager of information technology. His passions include acting, painting, singing, music, travel, the environment and all animals. Kunal’s work has appeared in Tehelka Magazine, India Currents, Hot Flashes: Sexy Little Stories and Poems and Hot Flashes 2. My Magical Palace, published by Harper Collins (India) is his first novel and it has received wide coverage from Indian and international press.
Rahul, a young man in list late thirty’s, living in San Francisco, is haunted by dreams of the loss of the palace he grew up in. When his partner Andrew discovers that Rahul is still interviewing girls sent by his parents for an arranged marriage, he moves out, giving Rahul an ultimatum—stop living a lie and share the secret of his angst and unhappiness, or lose him and the relationship. Set in San Francisco today and in India in the early 1970s, My Magical Palace is a sensitive tale about a boy’s coming of age, and the many hurdles he must cross to heal and find himself.
Kunal received the title of Best Indian Debut Writer in December 2012 from the Tales Pensieve literary site. My Magical Palace was in the top 100 Sales Rank list on Amazon in Literary Fiction and in the top 10 Sales Rank in other categories for Kindle this year.

Jonathan’s background is in theater where he specialized on the works of Harold Pinter. Jonathan is also someone who dares to adore Friedrich Nietzsche, Richard Wagner and Gustav Mahler –and in the same breath recognizes their inspiration to all of his professions: designer, author, and playwright.
