Starmark hosts book signing session for Damyanti Biswas’ You Beneath Your Skin
Kolkata: Kolkata’s bookstore chain Starmark hosted a book signing session for Singapore-based author Damyanti Biswas at its South City Mall outlet here on Oct 11.

Damyanti Biswas signed copies of her book You Beneath Your Skin.

 

The book is centred on Indian American single mother Anjali Morgan who juggles her job as a psychiatrist with caring for her autistic teenage son. She is in a long-standing affair with ambitious police commissioner Jatin Bhatt – an irresistible attraction that could destroy both their lives.

 

 

Jatin’s home life is falling apart: his handsome and charming son is not all he appears to be, and his wife has too much on her plate to pay attention to either husband or son. But Jatin refuses to listen to anyone, not even the sister to whom he is deeply attached.

 

Across the city there is a crime spree: slum women found stuffed in trash bags, faces and bodies disfigured by acid. And as events spiral out of control Anjali is horrifyingly at the centre of it all.

 

In a sordid world of poverty, misogyny, and political corruption, Jatin must make some hard choices. But what he unearths is only the tip of the iceberg. Together with Anjali he must confront old wounds and uncover long-held secrets before it is too late.
