Broken News
by Amrita Tripathi
At any given point, news is breaking somewhere. The dynamics are fascinating, the lives hectic, the demands never-ending.... But what's going on inside a TV news channel? When the egos take over and the drive to succeed wipes out all else, identity crises, paranoia and insecurity take their toll. A prematurely aging drama queen, a melodramatic friend and a carefree Casanova ... friendship flies out the window, as events take on a life of their own and their world starts to unravel.

Death, betrayal, conspiracy theories and drama galore. Broken News is a work of fiction, but stabs at the truth of fractured identities and misplaced priorities in the glittering world of television news.
The Blue Bedspread

The Blue Bedspread
by Raj Kamal Jha
A midnight phone call awakens a man to inform him that his sister has died in childbirth. He is told he must keep the orphaned baby girl overnight, until her new, adopting parents can collect her. Over the course of that hot night in Calcutta, the man hurriedly writes stories to the baby sleeping on a blue bedspread in the next room: stories of the family she was born into, stories of the mother she will never know. Painting half-remembered scenes, he flits between past and present, recounting tales of the shared childhood of a boy and his sister who muffled their fears in the blueness of that very same bedspread. As the hours pass, the man gradually divulges a layered and transfixing confession of the darkest of family secrets.

Described by John Fowles as "remarkable, almost a coming-of-age of the Indian novel," this powerful, penetrating debut by a young New Delhi journalist has already been recognized as an international literary event. In prose that is breathtaking and precise, Raj Kamal Jha discovers the hidden violence and twisted eroticism of an exotic, overcrowded old city. Unlike the India captured in the exotic prose of Salman Rushdie and Arundhati Roy, Jha writes in a spare, straightforward style that has prompted comparisons to American realists like Raymond Carver and Don DeLillo. The Blue Bedspread is a searingly honest story about the love and hope that can survive in the midst of family violence. It is a first novel of extraordinary power and humanity.
