Naben Ruthnum (Nathan Ripley) is a Toronto-based novelist, critic, and screenwriter. His 2017 book Curry: Eating, Reading, and Race parallels the evolution of the incredibly varied dish the subcontinent is perhaps best known for with the narrow ways in which South Asian identity in the West is often received. Ruthnum's fiction has been published in magazines ranging from Ellery Queen’s Mystery Magazine to Granta, and he is a winner of Canada’s Journey Prize for short fiction. His first thriller, Find You In The Dark, was published in North America by Atria / Simon and Schuster and in the UK by Text Publishing in 2018. He and his frequent screenwriting partner Kris Bertin currently have projects in development at Oddfellows Entertainment.
