About the Book
The PM's hatchet man is worried: he's just discovered that Naresh Gupta, an ageing MP who knows where all the bodies are buried, is going mad from a thirty-year-old dose of syphilis. Gupta has evidence of government shenanigans, evidence that, if made public, will decimate the Ruling Alliance in the forthcoming general elections. Others scramble to take advantage: Gupta's son, a Presidential hopeful; a suave Pakistani spy who doesn't want to go back home; and a government educationist who happens to be a man dressed up as a woman. Complicating matters are a woman assassin who lectures on the Bhagavad Gita in her spare time and a doctor prepared to sign any certificate for the right price. All the action centres around two competing bawdy houses that the movers and shakers favour, where everyone uses the system to get what they want.A biting satire on those who run our country and the way they run it, The Pillow Talk Movies is another gem from critically acclaimed writer Shashi Warier.
