Vidya Balan, an avid reader and a linguist herself, will launch Munmun Ghosh’ second novel titled Unhooked Landmark Bookstore, Infinity Mall, Versova, Andheri (W), Mumbai, on 5th October 2012. The one-hour event will see her reading excerpts from the book and talking to the media and the public about its subject.
Munmun Ghosh worked as a full-fledged journalist with prestigious newspapers and publications before turning to creative writing. Hushed Voices, her first novel that was published in 2005 delved into the lives of the marginalized classes of Mumbai. In Unhooked, she explores the metro phenomenon of intellectual mating between the sexes and its repercussions. The novel’s protagonist woos the men she fancies with words alone, determined to lose her virginity to that man alone who commits.
Noted writer and journalist Shobhaa De has commended the book as ‘an unblinking view of the contemporary concerns that confront thirtysomething career women looking for love, but not necessarily sex.’
