Big Girl Now
Big Girl Now brings to vivid life a lost generation adrift in the brave, new India of the 21st Century.
Twenty-five-year-old Sophie Das has moved from her hometown, Shillong, to Bangalore, in search of work, fun and freedom. Big Girl Now follows Sophie and her friends through the streets, offices, pubs, shopping malls, call-centers, and rock concerts of the money-mad city and into the homes of Bangalore's new rich.
But when a horrific murder sends her back home to her Hamlet-quoting father and increasingly religious mother, Sophie is force to reconsider what is valuable and where she belongs.
Balancing cynicism with warmth humour, wit with uncertainty, empathy with honesty, Big Girl Now is an assured portrait of a new generation looking to find their place in a fast-changing world.
'Anjum Hasan is one of the most suggestive and subtle Indian writers of her generation.'
