The Weight Loss Club (English) (Paperback) Price: Rs. 173

A warm, witty, gloriously realistic novel about living, loving and losing weight.

Set in a middle-class housing colony, this is the story of stay-at-home mum Monalisa, who cannot clean the kitchen counter enough times; Meera, who is bullied constantly by her traditional mother-in-law; college-going Abeer, who isnt sure how to impress the glamorous Mandy; academic Aparajita, who has no takers on the marriage mart; philosopher Ananda, whom no one takes seriously; and Treeza, a former school secretary now sunk in gloom. Into their midst arrives Oxford-returned Sandhya: half hippie, half saadhvi, full spiritual guru. Under her aegis is formed The Weight Loss Club, throwing the lives of our heroes and heroines into utter and delightful disarray.

But while chemistry brews and equations change, one question remains: who is Brahmacharini Sandhya, and why on earth has she moved into Nancy Housing Cooperative?

About the Author
Devapriya Roy has degrees in English literature and performance studies from Presidency College, Calcutta, and Jawaharlal Nehru University, New Delhi, where she is pursuing a PhD on the Natyashastra (at least, that is what she says when asked what she does). Once upon a time, she was the Keo Karpin girl. Her first novel, The Vague Womans Handbook, was published in 2011. She is currently working on The Heat and Dust Project, the story of a quirky journey through India on an extreme budget, along with her husband, Saurav Jha.

Humane and Humorous

This book reminded me of Alexander McCall Smith's 44 Scotland Street stories. It has that loving attention to people and places, the carefully interwoven relationships that characterize life in a housing colony as well as sufficient personal drama for each of its many characters to bring them to lasting life in the reader's imagination. Sometimes the stories go into deep, drawn-out detail as in the story behind Treeza Matthew's depression; other characters are more swiftly yet equally surely sketched -- a case in point being Molly who will be instantly identifiable to anybody who has studied i

The author has been successfully weave a story that is very engaging. One does not lose interest at any point of time. The description of everyday and 'Puja' Kolkata made me very nostalgic. It's a book you would want to curl up with on a late November afternoon.

in initial few pages I felt its too many characters but then later all of them seemed as friends as i understood most of them because you presented them so well...

i read lots of new books, i mean current Indian book scene, but for a change somebody is just not writing about how they fell in love or something similar... and I am not trying to flatter...

and of course best thing i found was that mob idea that you brought in...

Heartwarming stories and Lively characters

"The Weight Loss club" is a delightful, enjoyable read that took me on an incredible journey into the Nancy Housing Society. The book is set in Kolkata and explores the lives of the residents of Nancy. Even though there are so many characters, Devapriya Roy does a beautiful job of weaving them so well that you understand the whole story. The characters are so alive and very likeable. It opened up so many memories for me. For instance, the part about the Momzillas who are seen outside the school gates not only had me in splits,it took me back to my school days. Devapriya described it perfectly.

True, touching and beautiful

This second book by Devapriya has touched so many heartstrings...beautifully written with evocations of lost times, sensitive souls and cosmic meanings. She blends myth, memory and mystery with the subtlety of a dream, and her story flows back and forth in time with the ease and grace of air. Highly recommended.

Real and Relatable!

To begin with, the cover page is designed very well. It is vibrant and has the flair to attract reader’s attention.

The author’s style of writing carries in depth philosophy and it is intricately woven into the simple lives of the neighbors in Nancy Housing Cooperatives!

There is no story as such. This book can be called as a compilation of few events that unravels during some days prior to and a few months after the arrival of Sandhya.

The beauty of the book lies in the fact that the characters are so real. They are like you and me. There is neither exaggeration nor drama. The author has e

Delightful reading

Books are mouth to the author as it is ears to the readers. It becomes a delight when it provides imagination power and when a reader starts to relate with the characters of the book. In her first book, Vague woman’s handbook, Devapriya produced a strong character who was independent and smart. On the other hand in this book (the weight loss club) a group of people with varied characteristics, temperament has been portrayed which has its own contribution towards making a strong society. It was an awesome experience reading this book.
