What is the best book you’ve read that most people have probably never heard of?

Answer by Raakhee V. Menon:

While international authors get some kind of exposure somehow, several brilliant Indian authors remain undiscovered by the international reading crowd.

I read only English books and those written by contemporary Indian authors are my personal favorites. I guess one of the main reasons why I like reading their works is because I am able to identify with the cultural references being made in them.

Here are a few of my personal favorites that I think didn’t get the attention it deserves…

Those Pricey Thakur Girls – Anuja Chauhan

The House that BJ built – Anuja Chauhan

Ladies’ Coupe – Anita Nair

Life Is What You Make It – Preeti Shenoy

Ancient Promises – Jaishree Misra

The Bachelor of Arts – R. K. Narayan

Daughters of Shame – Jasvinder Sanghera

Sita’s Sister – Kavita Kane

Besides these, there are a few non-Indian author books that I liked very much.

Sister – Rosamund Lupton

Sisters & Lovers – Connie Briscoe

City of Joy – Dominique Lapierre
