Sonny, the middle-aged wife of a chemist and Ash, a would-be writer in his twenties with suicidal inclinations seemingly have little in common, other than their Delhi Cantt address and a liking for taking a walk when everyone else is at work. They also share a rather unhealthy interest in their neighbours? lives, thus raising Indian nosiness to its epitome. However, when these two unhappy people get together, their frustration and dissatisfaction with the lives they lead goad them to commit big and little acts of cruelty and unkindness that adversely affect the lives of many people?from Sonny?s paralyzed mother-in-law and seven-year-old mute maid to anyone else who appears to be happier than them. Dark, powerful storyline Crisp, easily readable style Well-sketched characters whose lives give insights into life in urban India Long listed for the Man Asian Literary Prize, 2009 About the Author Kanishka Gupta is a novelist, literary consultant and freelance researcher.
