Today on literary links we are interviewing Vātsyāyana; author of Kamasutra. It’s a steamy one ladies and gentlemen.
NefretitiM: Tell me Vātsyāyana, what inspired you to write this book?
Vātsyāyana: I thought an updated, modern version of the Kama Sutra was a good idea and that inspired me.
NefretitiM: How did you come up with the title?
Vātsyāyana: The book is a classic revisited – we feel it says what it does with the title.
NefretitiM: What genre does this book to fit into?
NefretitiM: What influenced your interest in writing this work?
Vātsyāyana: The Kamasutra is an ancient text but a lot of positives can be taken from it. We want this book to showcase these in a beautiful, modern manner.
NefretitiM: What is the writing process like for you?
Vātsyāyana: It took time to translate. The book has some quite interesting, albeit antiquated understandings which are interesting in a social context.
NefretitiM: What do you like to do when you’re not writing?
Vātsyāyana: I like silence and I like to write or translate early in the day as my concentration is better then.
NefretitiM: What tips or words of encouragement do you have for other writers?
Vātsyāyana: Grind it out
