Nikesh Shukla

Nikesh Shukla is a writer and podcast host. He is the editor of The Good Immigrant, where 21 British writers of colour discuss race and immigration in the UK. His YA novel, Run Riot, was published in 2018 and is an adrenaline-fuelled political thriller about gentrification, corruption and community.

This International Men’s Day, during Book Week Scotland, Nikesh will join us on Authors Live to discuss his latest novel, The Boxer, which explores racism, far-right radicalisation and sport's ability to empower and enrich young peoples' lives. We'll also be looking at why it’s so important for young people, and particularly young men, to talk about their mental wellbeing.
