The Hindu Prize shortlist announced

We're pleased to reveal that DGA author, Deepti Kapoor, has reached the shortlist of The Hindu Prize for fiction 2014, with her novel A BAD CHARACTER. See the announcement here. Brilliant news! Buy the book here.

Deepti Kapoor: A Bad Character The simplistic title belies a deeper query into the nature of 'badness' which should be distinguished from villainy or wickedness. The story revolves around the narrator, a young woman recelling in the free spirit of cosmopolitan Delhi, experimenting with books, romance, clothes, food, people, drugs, and much else. Into this youthful scenario comes Prince Charming in wolf's clothing, quite reversing the formula of seduction. Entry to this unknown and challenging world upsets many assumptions of polite society and there's the catch. Told in racy language, the headlong plunge into metropolitan madness captures every nerve with excitement.
