For those who have been waiting, my book is finally going to be available in India this month!
The official launch is taking place at 7 p.m. on December 15, at Crosswords Bookstore in Powai, Mumbai.
I’ll be in conversation with Indian author Jerry Pinto.
As far as I’m concerned, Jerry’s worthwhile meeting in his own right and I’m thrilled that he was chosen for the event. I’ve been told he’s a very funny guy, which I’m hoping will compensate for any stage fright that I’m sure to have. That aside, I can relate to him! He was once a mathematics teacher and has a law degree (as opposed to my accounting one), he’s also worked for a travel dotcom, and he likes to write about topical issues too.
Gotta love his book about Surviving Women (a guide for the confused Indian man in the modern day world)! He’s also won the National Award for the Best Book on Cinema, for his book Helen: The Life and Times of an H Bomb, about a Bollywood dancer. The book is also described as “a wonderfully witty and provocative examination of middle-class Indian morality; the politics of religion, gender and sexuality in popular culture; and the importance of the song, the item-number and the wayward woman in Hindi cinema”.
I’m sure Jerry will facilitate some very interesting discussion. It would be great to see some of you there. Everyone is welcome!
