      THE LIBERALS
      Hindol Sengupta
      Publisher: HarperCollins Publishers India
      ISBN: 9789350291436
      Price: Rs. 350.00
      1991. The year the Indian economy opened
      up to the world and unleashed a billion
      desires and dreams. But who are these
      restless dreamers? This is a very private
      story of a very public middle-class
      consumption revolution.
      From proselytizing American schools in
      Calcutta to Page-3 parties in Delhi and
      television studios in Bombay, The Liberals
      brings to life unforgettable characters
      spawned by the needs of the world's largest
      democracy.
      Communist Bob Dylans jam with murderous
      villagers, girlfriends give lessons in
      capitalism, TV stylists snarl over white shirts,
      Amar Singh talks about love and Akshay
      Kumar about what it takes to be the boy
      next door. Through it all, Hindol Sengupta
      lives to tell the tale of GDP rising.
      This is the autobiography of liberalization,
      entertaining and immensely relatable, and
      an insider's account of finding one's place in
      a newly liberalized India.
      .................................................. ..........
      ...................................
      'The Liberals tells us the story of an India in
      transition from a very personal vantage
      point, one that is full of cheeky intelligence
      and delicious insight. Hindol Sengupta has
      given us lots to think about and even more
      to chuckle about' -Santosh Desai
      'Here is an account of Manmohan's children,
      the Gen Next who have the world as their
      oyster … Hindol Sengupta's droll memoirs
      at such a young age will echo in many a
      young person's mind. Hindol speaks for
      India's future and a funky future it is too!'
      Meghnad Desai
      'An engaging personal tale of the post-
      reform generation told with spirit by one of
      its children' -Gurcharan Das

      An enthralling collection of motorcycle-rela
      ted writing..
      SONS OF THUNDER:
      Writing from the Fast Lane, A Motorcycling
      Anthology
      Selected and Introduced by Neil Bradford
      Publisher: Mainstream
      ISBN: 9781780575247
      Price: Rs. 499.00
      Robert Pirsig, in his groundbreaking Zen and
      the Art of Motorcycle Maintenance, wrote
      about the relationship of rider and machine,
      the fact of 'seeing deeply into the nature of
      things by direct experience'. T. E. Lawrence
      described 'the lustfulness of moving swiftly',
      the sensation of feeling 'the earth moulding
      herself under me....heaving and tossing on
      each side like a sea'.
      Not all the contributors to this exhilaratingly
      high-octane collection are quite so lyrical or
      mystical. Hunter S. Thompson concludes his
      review of the Ducati 900 Supersport with a
      brutal comparison: 'A fool couldn't ride the
      Vincent Black Shadow more than once, but a
      fool can ride a Ducati 900 many times, and it
      will always be a bloodcurdling kind of fun.
      That is the Curse of Speed which has
      plagued me all my life. I am a slave to it. On
      my tombstone they will carve, It Never Got
      Fast Enough For Me.'
      Men don't have the monopoly on mufflers
      or power-to-weight ratio. Melissa Holbrook
      Pierson, Lois Pryce and Theresa Wallach
      have full-throttle tales to tell. There are even
      poems by Ted Hughes and Thom Gunn
      about the pleasures and perils of riding this
      awesome machine.
      For the fanatic and even the armchair
      traveller, Neil Bradford's collection of
      motorcycle writing, Sons of Thunder, makes
      the most persuasive case for the unique
      excitement and emotional experience
      offered by one of humankind's greatest
      inventions.

      THE CASE OF THE DEADLY BUTTER CHICKEN
      Tarquin Hall
      Publisher: Hutchinson
      ISBN: 9780091937416
      Price: Rs.499.00
      Vish Puri is as fond of butter chicken as the
      next Punjabi. And when there's plenty on
      offer at the Delhi Durbar hotel where he's
      attending an India Premier League cricket
      match dinner, he's the first to tuck in. Irfan
      Khan, father of Pakistani star cricketer
      Kamran Khan, can't resist either. But the
      creamy dish proves his undoing. After a few
      mouthfuls, he collapses on the floor, dead.
      Clearly this isn't a case of Delhi Belly.
      But who amongst the Bollywood stars,
      politicians, bureaucrats and industrialists
      poisoned Khan is a mystery. And with the
      capital's police chief proving as incompetent
      as ever, it falls to Most Private Investigators
      to find out the truth. Puri is soon able to link
      Khan to a bald bookie called Full Moon and
      all the clues point to the involvement of a
      gambling syndicate that controls the illegal X
      billion dollars betting industry.
      The answers seem to lie in Surat, the
      diamond cutting and polishing capital of the
      world (where Puri's chief undercover
      operative Tubelight meets his match) and
      across the border in Pakistan, Puri's
      nemesis, the one country where he has
      sworn never to set foot. Or do they? A
      certain determined, grey-haired lady with a
      unique insight into the murder believes that
      the portly detective is barking up 'a wrong
      tree.'
      Is Mummy-ji right? Is there more to the
      murder than meets the eye? And why, to
      make life even more complicated for Vish
      Puri, has someone tried to steal the longest
      moustache in the world - from right under
      the nose of its owner? Literally.

      THE DUST WILL NEVER SETTLE
      Mukul Deva
      Publisher: Harper Collins
      ISBN: 9789350293317
      Price: Rs. 299.00
      When terror strikes Jerusalem again, the
      international community persuades the
      Israelis and the Palestinians to resume their
      long-stalled peace talks. A dozen negotiators
      converge on Delhi to try and wrest peace for
      a land torn apart by centuries of strife and
      mistrust.
      Lashkar-e-Toiba, struggling to fill the
      leadership void created by the killing of
      Osama bin Laden, will not allow these talks
      to proceed. Enter Ruby Gill, an MI6 agent
      manipulated by the Lashkar and the Qassam
      Brigades to disrupt the summit.
      Caught in the crossfire is her father Ravinder
      Singh Gill, head of the Indian Anti-Terrorist
      Task Force, who is in charge of securing the
      Peace Summit. His work is immensely
      complicated by the Commonwealth Games
      being hosted simultaneously in Delhi.
      No one could have foreseen how explosively
      Ravinders past and Ruby's destiny would
      collide.
      Will peace finally find these strife-torn
      countries? Or will the dust never settle in
      the Promised Land? In this pacy fusion of
      fact and fiction by India's literary
      stormtrooper Mukul Deva, the private
      tragedy of the Gill family unravels against a
      high-stakes backdrop of international politics
      and deadly intrigue.

      How the digital turn and 9/11 have changed
      motion picture history.
      SFILM AFTER FILM: Or, What Became of 21st
      Century Cinema?
      J Hoberman
      Publisher: Verso
      ISBN: 9781844677511
      Price: £16.99 / Rs. 1568.00
      In this sly and thought-provoking volume, J.
      Hoberman turns an erudite eye to the study
      of twenty-first-century cinema and finds
      that, only a dozen years into the new
      millennium, the world of movies has already
      experienced a revolutionary transformation.
      The advent of new digital technology has
      displaced the medium of photographic film
      —and, perhaps, the reality on which it once
      depended. With locations, sets and cameras
      now optional, the history of motion pictures
      has become the history of animation.
      This sea change in filmmaking spanned the
      2000 American presidential election and the
      trauma of 9/11, events that reshaped world
      politics and left an indelible imprint on the
      emerging aesthetic of the new century’s
      cinema. A rupture opened up in the
      evolution of film, presaging, as Susan Sontag
      forlornly predicted a few years earlier, the
      death of cinephilia, or at least cinephilia as
      we know it.
      Witty and allusive, in the style of classic film
      theorist/critics such as André Bazin and
      Siegfried Kracauer, Film After Film expands
      on a much-discussed era-defining Artforum
      article by Hoberman before moving on to a
      chronicle of the Bush years in cinema
      (featuring reviews from Hoberman’s final
      decade at the Village Voice).
      The book concludes with considerations of
      the twenty-one central movies of the twenty-
      first century, which include works by Lars
      von Trier and Jia Zhangke as well as the hi-
      tech spectacles WALL-E and Avatar.

      The first adult novel by J K Rowling ...
      THE CASUAL VACANCY
      J K Rowling
      Publisher: Little, Brown and Company
      ISBN :9781408704202
      Hardcover 512 Pages
      Price: $39.99 / Special Price: 850.00
      When Barry Fairbrother dies unexpectedly in
      his early forties, the little town of Pagford is
      left in shock.
      Pagford is, seemingly, an English idyll, with a
      cobbled market square and an ancient
      abbey, but what lies behind the pretty
      façade is a town at war.
      Rich at war with poor, teenagers at war with
      their parents, wives at war with their
      husbands, teachers at war with their
      pupils…. Pagford is not what it first seems.
      And the empty seat left by Barry on the
      town’s council soon becomes the catalyst for
      the biggest war the town has yet seen. Who
      will triumph in an election fraught with
      passion, duplicity and unexpected
      revelations?
      Blackly comic, thought-provoking and
      constantly surprising, a big novel about a
      small town, The Casual Vacancy is J.K.
      Rowling’s first novel for adults.
      ::
      J.K. Rowling is the author of the bestselling
      Harry Potter series of seven books,

      territories, translated into 74 languages, and

      films. She has also written two small
      volumes, which appear as the titles of

      by Scholastic Bloomsbury Children’s Books
      in March 2001 in aid of Comic Relief. In

      was published in aid of the Children’s High
      Level Group, and quickly became the fastest

      As well as an OBE for services to children’s
      literature, J.K. Rowling is the recipient of
      numerous awards and honorary degrees
      including the Prince of Asturias Award for
      Concord, France’s Légion d’honneur, and
      the Hans Christian Andersen Literature
      Award, and she has been a Commencement
      Speaker at Harvard University. She supports

      The Casual Vacancy

      (Hardcover) by J. K. Rowling


      Publisher: Little, Brown Book Group (2012)




      Book Summary of The Casual Vacancy

      When Barry Fairweather dies unexpectedly in his early forties, the little town of Pagford is left in shock.

      Pagford is, seemingly, an English idyll, with a cobbled market square and an ancient abbey, but what lies behind the pretty façade is a town at war.

      Rich at war with poor, teenagers at war with their parents, wives at war with their husbands, teachers at war with their pupils…Pagford is not what it first seems.

      And the empty seat left by Barry on the parish council soon becomes the catalyst for the biggest war the town has yet seen. Who will triumph in an election fraught with passion, duplicity and unexpected revelations?

      Blackly comic, thought-provoking and constantly surprising, The Casual Vacancy is J.K. Rowling’s first novel for adults.
