Author Delves Into India's Underworld

Baby-faced author Vikram Chandra, in brown V-neck sweater and sipping a skimmed latte, does not immediately strike you as a guy who has spent most of the past decade hanging out with gangsters.
Nor does the soft-spoken novelist swagger like someone who has become an international publishing phenomenon and the center of a million-dollar bidding war.
Instead, as he sits in a coffee shop a block from his oak-shaded bungalow, the 45-year-old writer blends in with other intellectuals from the nearby University of California, Berkeley, where he teaches creative writing.
