About The Book:
When journalist Shruti Ranjan, newly-wed wife of the Deputy Commissioner of Kishanganj in the lawless Bihar of the 1990s, is brutally raped by a ‘politically sheltered local goon’ all of her attempts at getting justice are crushed by a corrupt and complicit state government. That’s when the charismatic Sharad Malviya, a leading member of the Opposition party, offers her an unlikely solution: his party’s ticket to contest the Lok Sabha elections. Left with little to choose from, Shruti agrees, only to realize that being catapulted to an enviable position of power in an all-man’s world comes at a price. Caught between her mentor and her spouse – both upright but ultimately flawed men – and a host of envious others who continue to cast aspersions on her character, she struggles to address the larger problems of the country.

The story is about Shruti Ranjan , a journalist from the state of Bihar gets into politics to take revenge of her rape. The book talks about the entire struggle she faces in her personal and professional life. Itâs an amazing women oriented book. You must read it once!
The Edge of Desire is one of the best women oriented book I have ever read. The story was very inspiring. Also the protagonist was well portrayed. I have already recommended my friends to read the book. Would recommend everyone to read the book once!
Nice book. Very interesting description of a woman's fight against male domination in the society at large and at a very individual and personal level too. I was also happy to get an idea about the political issues of those times, but at some places it was a little overdose. It is not one of those breezy books that you can read at one go. A little heavy on the mind!
Tuhin Sinha is such a great writer. I love the way he writes his books. âThe Edge of Desire âseems to be a very interesting book. The main protagonist is physically abused and the story revolves around how she becomes tough and decides to take revenge, the difficulties she has to go through etc. This book cannot be missed.
It talks about a women who has the burning need to avenge her rape, the humiliation every women goes through who has been through this tragedy. This book probably will inspire women to even fight back against physical abuse which they encounter daily. So looking forward to this one which will be in stores on 10th May 2012.
