Richard C. Morais has been a senior editor at Forbes for over twenty years and was once the magazine's European bureau chief. He grew up in Europe, was an actor before becoming a journalist, and is well connected in the media and film communities. A longtime friend of the late Ismail Merchant, the venerable producer behind Merchant and Ivory Productions, he and Ismail Merchant used to enjoy lavish meals together and always dreamed of collaborating on a project that would join their shared love of food with Richard's desire to write and Ismail's film experience. The Hundred-Foot Journey, Richard Morais' international best-selling debut novel, was the result. Buddhaland Brooklyn is Richard Morais's second novel.
