I am a novelist, journalist and screenwriter.

My novels are:

  • ‘Serious Men’,
  • ‘The Illicit Happiness of Other People’ and
  • ‘Miss Laila, Armed and Dangerous’.

I am also the creator of the Netflix series, ‘Decoupled’.

I used to write a column for The New York Times, and now write a weekly column in the Mint. I have created this website to see if a particular kind of journalism and literary work, and eventually short films, can commercially sustain themselves.

bymanujoseph.com is a media website that would feature my creative or journalistic work and the works of other artists and journalists.

Users have free access and are encouraged to contribute.

I plan to sustain a type of non-activist writing through the generosity of readers. You can give any amount.
