Alright! So Chetan Bhagat is stealing the show – online, offline and even on rail lines. Matters not! Here we are to present to you 6 amazing books by Indian authors which are relatively unheard of but surely worth a read. PS – Non-fiction alert!
This is a collection of 15 short stories by a ‘most exciting’ debutant author, Palash Mehrotra. The stories are set in the dark underbellies of cities and towns, rented rooms and college hostels – where prostitutes, drug addicts, stalkers and murderers roam easy. While perversions are portrayed, vulnerabilities of the characters are beautifully portrayed too. Read these stories for a candid view of depravity which is a part of India that most are aware of, but few want to acknowledge.
