The Writer's Toolkit (Nick Hern Books) 'A goldmine, honest and down-to-earth… Kalburgi manages to achieve more than a theoretical manual on the art of scriptwriting; he invigorates his creatives, cheers them on, and urges them to dust off their notebooks and start scribbling, stirring his reader's imagination with well-calibrated pointers' Broadway World book review.
In The Tall Grass (Dallas, TX) "Arresting and beautiful! Challenging and redemptive in many many ways. It is both an important work for us as theater lovers - and for us as human beings - especially in these crazy, troubled times we are communally struggling with. Go see it." City of Dallas Office of Cultural Affairs

Almost The Birthday Party (London, UK) "An intoxicating flurry of drama, which sucks you in, and has you laughing from the get-go" Maybe It's Because I'm A Londoner.
