Fingerprint to Publish Anon. by Bhavani Iyer
Welcome to Calcutta of the sixties and the seventies.
Meet Debottam, the genius vagabond son of a wealthy zamindar.
Meet Urbish, the ambitious dreamer whose father is a fisherman.
Walk with them through the red earth of Shantiniketan.
Visit the jazz clubs of Park Street.
Experience friendship redefined by two people who have only one thing in common—Writing.
But one is willing to kill to write, And the other is willing to die.
Anon. Short for Anonymous.
After all what’s in a name?
‘This quiet river of a story makes sudden breaks into dramatic rapids and is quiet again. Somehow pace and polish go together in a prose that carries along love, hate, delicate boys, coy girls and even reverent and sly analysis of stories themselves. Bhavani makes intellectuality look good.’
About the book: Debottam Bhattacharya, the scion of a wealthy zamindar, and Urbish Sardar, a fisherman’s son, have one thing in common—writing. With their literary fates mirroring those of Christopher Marlowe and William Shakespeare—the masters of English literature, what happens when Deb and Urbish meet on the red earth of Shantiniketan?
Set in Calcutta of the sixties and seventies, this story with true-to-life characters brings alive the classic struggle between the haves and the have-nots. A riveting read, Anon. is bound to keep you hooked.
