With Richard C. Morais & Matthew Binder

Richard C. Morais is the author of the New York Times and international bestseller The Hundred-Foot Journey, a story about an Indian chef who conquers the rarified world of French haute cuisine. The book sold in 35 territories around the world and in 2014 Steven Spielberg and Oprah Winfrey released The Hundred-Foot Journey as a popular film starring Helen Mirren and Om Puri.

Little A, the literary imprint of Amazon Publishing, is publishing his third novel The Man With No Borders on September 1st, 2019. Mr. Morais’s sophomore novel, Buddhaland Brooklyn, is about a Japanese Buddhist priest building a temple in Brooklyn. It, too, sold globally and is currently in development as a premium TV series with K&L Productions. Mr. Morais also writes business biographies and wrote the critically acclaimed Pierre Cardin: The Man Who Became a Label. He reads from his newest novel, “The Man With No Borders”.

"Whether he’s untangling the strands of José’s dark inner world or offering a glimpse of a milieu where money serves as both lubricant and salve, Morais effectively reveals how heartbreakingly inadequate even vast resources can be in providing a bulwark against the assault of life’s most formidable challenges. A meticulous unearthing of the painful contradictions in a privileged life." - Kirkus Reviews
