Vikram Chandra in conversation with Nick Taylor: "Geek Sublime: The Beauty of Code, the Code of Beauty"
Friday, October 3, 7:30pm - Doors open at 6:30pm
Kepler's Books

Menlo Park, CA 94025

Vikram Chandra has been a computer programmer for almost as long as he has been a novelist. In this extraordinary new book, his first work of nonfiction, he searches for the connections between the worlds of art and technology. Coders are obsessed with elegance and style, just as writers are, but do the words mean the same thing to both? Can we ascribe beauty to the craft of writing code?

Exploring such varied topics as logic gates and literary modernism, the machismo of tech geeks, the omnipresence of an "Indian Mafia" in Silicon Valley, and the writings of the eleventh-century Kashmiri thinker Abhinavagupta, "Geek Sublime" is both an idiosyncratic history of coding and a fascinating meditation on the writer's art.

Vikram Chandra is the author of three highly acclaimed works of fiction, most recently "Sacred Games", which won the 2006 Hutch Crossword Award. Chandra lives in Oakland and teaches at UC Berkeley.

Nick Taylor is the author of the historical novels "The Disagreement" and "Father Junípero's Confessor". He has also published a thriller, "The Setup Man", under the pseudonym T.T. Monday.
