Product description

Product Description

A Soft Eclipse is the story of Mohini, a Bengali woman caught between the her middle-class upbringing and the sheer shallowness and artificiality of upper-class Bengali society. It is the story of the majority of Indian women, one of sacrifices, compromises and love. Superbly written and laced with a fantastic sense of humor, the novel gives a scathing portrayal of Kolkata's corporate world of the 70s and also takes the reader behind the scenes of Kolkata's superficial high society to show the sexually disturbing and shockingly sad lives that they lived. Even though written by a man, it voices the interesting and mostly disturbing stories of many women in an authentic and brilliant manner. From love stories, family relationships and issues of religion, to the sex lives and illicit affairs of the characters, the novel has every element required to keep the reader interested till the last page.
