Khushwant Singh is easily the most widely read author in India today. He has done different things at different times: practiced law, diplomacy and politics, taught comparative religion at Princeton and Swarthmore, and edited the Illustrated Weekly of India and The Hindustan Times. He has also edited and translated a number of literary works. His acerbic pen, his wit and humour, and, most of all, his ability to laugh at himself, have ensured him immense popularity over the years. He was a Member of Parliament from 1980 to 1986. Among other honours, he was awarded the Padma Bhushan in 1974 by the president of India (he returned the decoration in 1984 in protest against the Union government's siege of the Golden Temple, Amritsar). He lives in New Delhi.

What can you expect when Khushwant Singh irrepressible as ever, cuttingly candid and provocatively truthful decides to write about some of the women and men in his life? An unputdownable volume, which spans his life and his long, chequered career, in which he reminisces about the people he has met, befriended and fallen out with. The list includes film makers, politicians, industrialists, lawyers, civil servants, writers as well as other relatively unknown personalities
