Neel Mukherjee on Boredom

“To write, I think one must sit in one place and be bored. Boredom is a very good state for writers to be. Things cook away in your head when you’re bored, and suddenly one day, you have a book or a germ of a book.” – Neel Mukherjee

“Neel Mukherjee (born 1970) is an India-born writer who lives in London and writes in English. He is the author of several critically acclaimed novels. He is also brother of famous television anchor/editor Udayan Mukherjee. His first novel, Past Continuous, won the Vodafone-Crossword Book Award in 2008 and several more awards when republished in the U.K. in 2010. His second novel, The Lives of Others, was shortlisted for the 2014 Man Booker Prize and won the Encore Award.” (Wikipedia)
