Popcorn Essayists : What Movies do to Writers (English) (Hardcover) Price: Rs. 325

A sparkling collection studded with wit, passion and insight, the essays are personal reflections on genres of cinema: Hollywood blockbusters, Hindi noir, horror — and any other kind you may have sat through wide-eyed in a million small-town halls or metro multiplexes — and the effect they had on individual lives.

Ranging from the sparse, undemonstrative work of Finland's Kaurismäki brothers to a boisterous Punjabi masala movie that may or may not be about a foot fe- tish; from a writer's first — and hilarious — experience of watching a film in a theatre, to one who performs a Helen dance in drag at a Brooklyn square … each of these essays reveals to readers a completely different side of their authors.

Edited by journalist, film and book critic Jai Arjun Singh, these recollections are what every movie-goer-- and book-lover--should read.

Includes essays by: Rajorshi Chakraborti, Musharraf Ali Farooqi, Namita Gokhale, Anjum Hasan, Amitava Kumar, Madhulika Liddle, Jaishree Misra, Manjula Padmanabhan, Kamila Shamsie, Jai Arjun Singh, Manil Suri, Sumana Roy, Sidin Vadukut
