Ask Kabita #9: Our Book Recommendation Expert

Post by: BookChums

 

It is the dawn of yet another New Year. We have lived to tell the tale having outlived all the catastrophes from the past year. Rejuvenated, yet a little dazed, I’m all set to read and answer your queries.

To start this New Year with a book on travel (although I’ve barely read any), which one would you suggest to me? Thanks! - Manish Ranjan, Bangalore

Thank you for writing. You can start from The Great Railway Bazaar by Paul Theroux. Riveting in narration, this book will certainly get you hooked on to other travelogues. Happy reading!

 

I’m looking for women-centric reads by Indian authors. Please tell me of a few. Thank you. - Uma Wahi, Udaipur

Ripples: Short Stories by Indian Women Writers and A Calendar too Crowded by Sagarika Chakraborty are great reads to begin with. Further these writings are versatile in themes and plots.

 

Please tell me of a light biography or autobiography that doesn’t run into endless pages. Thank you! - Deepak Wanchoo, Jammu

Boy and Going Solo by Roald Dahl are the best in the mentioned genres. You can also pick up books from the Horrible Histories series. These books make you look at history in a lighter and amusing way.

 

Folks, keep writing to us at ask@bookchums.com. Cheers!
