Paro

Author: Namita Gokhale

Paro is a heroic temptress, alluring and rapacious, the stuff of legend. As she wanders through the world of privilege and scotch whisky that the urban rich inhabit, she is constantly observed by the acid Priya, eternal voyeur and diarist... This is a dazzling moral tale, sharp, sexy and funny.

Book Reviews
