The Girl Who Ate Books By Nilanjana Roy
“I’m unable to explain why you want to eat books in the first place and why, having honed that appetite, you would grow past it into other pleasures.”
The novel The Girl Who Ate Books By Nilanjana Roy takes us down memory lane of the author’s life, dusty books, stuffed stacks, and lost books of her grandmother. It is like a journey of a bibliophile.
She was a Kolkata-born Indian journalist, editor, critic, and author.
The Girl Who Ate Books is her essay collection. Her fictional works are The Wildings and The Hundred Names of Darkness. The Hundred Names of Darkness is the sequel to The Wildings.
The Girl Who Ate Books highlights the lives of many poets and authors like Dom Moraes, Arun Kolatker, Jeet Thayil, Agha Shahid Ali, Kamala Das, Kiran Nagarkar, Manjula Padmanabhan, Kushwant Singh, Arundhati Roy, Vikram Seth, P.Lal, Kaavya Viswanathan and many others.
This book not only
captures the author’s life- journey and her experience and encounters with other authors but also her inextricable relation with the book world.
