An unhappy divorce and a succession of sordid affairs have left prominent Bombay socialite Karuna bruised and battered and, in an effort to forget, she begins writing her memoirs. As the story of her life unfolds, we see how the gauche, middle-class girl metamorphoses into a star – and we also meet her friends and enemies: neurotic, man-hungry Anjali; gorgeous, vivacious Ritu; trampy, outrageous Si; Abe, who prefers young girls; Varun, a high-profile editor with a penchant for young boys; Krish, the pretentious adman, whose wife actively helps him in his extra-marital affairs; Girish, the art film-maker in search of the perfect ‘Shakuntala’. All these characters and more play out their lives against the backdrop of Bombay – a city unique unto itself…
The first novel by India’s best-selling chronicler of Bombay and Bollywood, Socialite Evenings changed the face of the Indian novel forever.
