The Best Seller by Arunabha Sengupta

Sengupta has developed a finely tempered blade of a book which takes artful slices at several pretentious elements of modern life.

Rated 5 stars by ForeWord Clarion Book Reviews

The story of a struggling author who lands up in Amsterdam, hunting for an agent or publisher to at least take a look at his manuscripts. As he prepares his synopses, SASE and sets of first three chapters, he works as a Ghost Blogger, tai chi instructor, an investigative journalist specialising in sting operations, and finally a messiah for the financial crisis by packaging together ancient Indian philosophy and the raunchier Woody Allen films.

The entire book is written in the second person, adding a touch of freshness to the narrative." ~ The Journal of Commonwealth Literature.
"The only English novel from India to deal with the 9/11." ~ Geetha-Ganpathi Dore in Post Colonial Indian Novel in English

The novel deals with topics of weight and importance with an irreverence that is almost mocking, while dissecting the society and laying it bare, tipping more than its share of sacred cows ...
