My Singapore FlingTitle: My Singapore Fling
Author: Sudesna Ghosh
Pages: 84
Price: INR 99

She’s had her share of heartbreaks and now seeks a fun, meaningless, no-strings attached fling. And so she travels to the island city of Singapore in search of an accent. Yes, an accent.

A Snippet from my New Release

“You waited years for this, Aditi! Just answer the damn phone,” she growled at me. So I did. Ravi sounded warm. His voice still made me weak in the knees. Ugh. We exchanged a few lines like any two acquaintances would. It was polite conversation. He asked me how my family was doing. I asked… Continue reading A Snippet from my New Release
