Raj Karamchedu is a translator, publisher, and writer born and raised in Hyderabad, India. Noticing a dearth of books about modern Telugu life and literature, he launched Saaranga Books in 2010. At Saaranga, he published works including Tanhayi, which gained fame as web's first Telugu literary novel; Aneka, a poetic document of post-2000 Telugu social and cultural life; and Sufi Cheppina Katha, a Telugu translation of the Kerala Sahitya Akademi Award-winning novel. Karamchedu’s translations will appear in The Oxford Anthology of Telugu Dalit Poems (Oxford University Press, 2015). All Things Unforgiven is his first novel. He lives in Sunnyvale, California.
