Amala and Suma launches 'Bonsai Kitten' Book at Landmark, Hyderabad
Landmark and Leadstart presented the launch of the book 'Bonsai Kitten', by Lakshmi Narayan at the Landmark store at KMC Retail Mall, Somajiguda on Saturday 2nd March, 2013. The book was unveiled by Ms. Amala Akkineni and Ms. Suma Kanakala.
Lakshmi Narayan's remarkable debut novel, Bonsai Kitten, is a no-holds-barred account of the tragedy, trials, travails and triumphs of the protagonist. The book is an intriguing, sometimes startling and often heart-tugging story of a young Indian woman who suffers not only the loss of her only child but betrayal by her adulterous husband. 'Bonsai Kitten tells the familiar Venus and Mars tale but uses presentation and format to give it a twist. The protagonist is Divya, a South Indian, who has lived abroad as an expatriate for a long time. That's where the personalities diverge', says the author at the launch.
