ISBN/UPC (if available): 0140298320
Brings together some of his nastiest and most irreverent pieces.
Malice. The word is synonymous with Khushwant Singh, his pen has spared no one. For over four decades as India's most widely-read columnist, he has commented on just about everything: Religion, politics, our future, our past, prohibition, impotency, Presidents, politicians, cricket, dog-haters, astrologers, the banning of books, the secrets of longevity. the list is endless.
Candid to the point of being outrageous, Khushwant Singh makes both his reader and subject wince. He writes unabashedly on nose-picking, wife-bashing, bribing journalists, gender wars and the desires of an octogenarian; on Nehru and Edwina, Laloo, Bal Thackery, Chandraswami and Sonia Gandhi, among a host of others.
Witty, sharp and brutally honest, this collection is certain to delight and provoke readers of all ages.
