Anjana Menon

Anjana Menon has been wrestling with words for as long as she can

remember. After doing her Master’s in English Literature, she got sucked

into a journalism career that took her to Southeast Asia and Europe with

Bloomberg News.


She returned to India as one of the founder-editors of the business

newspaper Mint and then ran a national television channel before setting

up her own content strategy consultancy. She has written two books, and

published with both Penguin Random House and HarperCollins.

She is a co-author of What's Your Story? The Essential Business

Storytelling Handbook published by Penguin Random House. It was a

category bestseller for several months.


Her second book, Onam in a Nightie: Stories from a Kerala Quarantine, was

the bestseller on The New Indian Express books list, a must read on

Scroll.com’s list, and category bestseller on Amazon.in, in the travel and

humour sections. Her writing has been compared to RK Narayan and

William Faulkner by critics.


She is a columnist for several business publications including The

Economic Times, Moneycontrol.com, Business Standard among others.

She likes people more than gadgets, dogs even more than people and slow

life over hurried living.


A British national, Anjana divides her time between Delhi and London.

Onam in a Nightie is her debut narrative non-fiction book.
