Sudesh Mishra was born in Suva, Fiji, and took his doctorate from the Flinders University of South Australia in 1989. He received the Harri Jones Memorial Prize (1988) for his published verse, including his first collection Rahu (1987). He has since published a second volume, Tandava (1992), a passionate indictment of the 1987 coup in Fiji. He has also edited Trapped: A Collection of Writing from Fiji (1992, with Seona Smiles) and recently made his debut as both playwright and actor with Ferringhi. Mishra is working on a new book of verse, a second play and a novel set in post-coup Fiji.
