A Bad Character is a novel written by the promising young Indian author Deepti Kapoor. It is a novel about female longing, which shows us a face of Delhi that we have never seen before in fiction works.

Summary of the Book

A Bad Character brings out the face of Delhi that is packed with violence, wrath and fraud. It is the story of a young woman called Idha, who finds amnesia of escape from the arranged marriage and the safety that her conventional world had to offer. She gets a chance to meet a young, charming but a dangerous man. She is exposed, even before she could realize, to the electrifying and frequently illicit pleasures that she could take and hold. As the affair continues, her double life becomes more differentiated and filled with new troubles. Her lover’s unsteady mannerisms keep increasing to the point of no return. Pain, addiction, love and violence, all end up forcing her to make his madness her own.
