Keith St Clair Butler

Keith St Clair Butler is an award-winning Anglo-Indian novelist and teacher living in New Zealand. He writes for national newspapers, literary journals, and anthologies. The Australian Literature Board awarded grants for the manuscript of The Secret Vindaloo (2014). The novel uses food as a deep metaphor for the inscription of a particular time and place. Of his many loves, he includes India, Indians, reading, writing, and of course, food. Watching re-runs of ‘I, Claudius’, ‘The King and I’, and the history channel with a chota peg of single malt Laphroaig close by is his preferred indulgence.
