The Page: Leave The World Behind by Rumaan Alam

Shreya is an architect who loves consuming good food and literature. She’s always been a book nerd but, in the past couple of years she hasn’t been able to make or find the the kind of time for it.

This last year she’s been been reading a bit too much and sleeping too little.

Apart from that, Shreya has taken her passion one step further by starting a book related Instagram blog, called @Papergrammer which helped keep her reading in check as well as be a part of a reading community that she wasn’t aware of. It has also exposed her to a diverse range of material that has been both fun as well as inspiring.

As the title suggests, with this episode we dive right into Rumaan Alam’s book – Leave The World Behind – that’s been hailed favourably by critics and book lovers alike. The Page is a recurring segment, which I hope to build upon in the coming months.
