    Bharat Madras Natarajan

    Excellent compilation of his most critical and famous works. A brutally honest, candid and funny intellectual. His range of works is simply stunning, illustrating his impact on all facets of Indian literature. Easily one of my favorite books, by one of my favorite authors.

    He always spoke his mind. There are moments when you do not agree with the writer but that was the only way he knew while framing his sentences. 99 is the pure extract of his life nicely brought together in one novel. RIP UNDETERRED KHUSHWANTJI.

    Abrasive writer. But tells it as it is. Khushwant is one of the very few writers who speak up their mind without fear. Lived life on his own terms. Great and sensitive collection of his writings. Makes you want to read more.
