Simon& Schuster India recently announced the acquisition of world rights for Shobhaa De's latest novel, 'Srilaaji: Diary of a Marwari Dowager'.
More than 17 of Shobhaa De's novels climbed the bestselling books charts on publication. Her debut novel, Socialite Evenings, was controversial and scandalous for the times but earned a cult status right away and was a huge commercial success, as was 'Starry Nights' which remains the most definitive novel about Bollywood. Her highly individualistic style of writing is at once irreverent, bold and compellingly readable.
"I am excited about the new novel! Fiction remains an enduring love affair in my life. I look forward to creating an unforgettable character called Srilaaji, and occupying her skin... exploring her world... uncovering her secret self," Shobhaa De.
