Sudipta Bandyopadhyay, who won the Scholastic essay contest for his paragraph on “compelling a wicked man to experience the painful suffering of his victims and the tragic consequences of his actions”, was profiled in NJ.com today. Here’s an interesting quote:

“I absolutely loved this kid’s essay,” said Arthur Levine editor of the Harry Potter books and a contest judge. “It was so beautifully written. I want him to write me a novel.”

“We were looking for essays that reflected the special qualities of the Harry Potter books,” he added. “Sudipta’s writing really illustrated the thoughtfulness and emotional reality of Harry Potter.”
