Product description


An Amazon Rising Star of Summer 2016: Based in Delhi, Half of What I Say follows the actions of Vyas, an inspector in the fictional Lokshakti anti-corruption police, who has sent a compromising love letter to his wife. In his attempts to retrieve it, Vyas crosses paths with an entrepreneur, Anand Dixit, who is bringing technology to India’s villages and a Bollywood actress who once starred in Ajaya, a subversive retelling of the Ramayana. When one of Dixit’s dissatisfied employees posts Ajaya, which was never meant for release, on the internet, Vyas himself becomes implicated in the conspiracy with near fatal results. Half of this erudite mish-mash of a novel could be described as a challenging read. The other 50 percent makes the heavy lifting worthwhile: brilliant insights into modern Indian society and a mastery of slang in English and Indian languages define this work. This novel, despite its endorsement by Ursula Le Guin, has only a small sci-fi element. It also includes a love triangle, crime-solving, political analysis, literary theory and musings on the impact of technology which somehow hang together as a satirical thriller. - Janice Wallace, Asian Review
