Guess the author

From the Guardian:

“[Slumdog Millionaire] piles impossibility on impossibility,” he said in a lecture at Emory University in Atlanta, raising questions over how the characters end up at the Taj Mahal, 1,000 miles from where they were in the previous scene, and how they manage to get their hands on a gun in India.

Hint: it’s the author that made a big postmodernist show of misplacing Gandhi’s death in his most famous novel. Lesson: you can fuck with history to brighten your narrative. But leave geography and gun laws alone. Let’s write off this voyage while we’re at it.
