Bad Language’s headliner in March is the amazing Nikesh Shukla.
Nikesh was shortlisted for the Costa First Novel Award, won Best Novella at the Sabotage Awards, and his novel Meatspace was compared by the Guardian to Douglas Coupland’s Generation X. He is a movie writer, podcaster and former writer-in-residence for BBC Asian Network and Royal Festival Hall.
