  • Description

    The book The Sunset Club has been declared by the author as his last novel. The book throws light on the loneliness and problems faced by the elderly. The three main characters in this book are Pandit Preetam Sharma, Sardar Boota Singh, and Nawab Barkatullah Baig. The trio have been a part of Sunset Club and friends for more than four decades. They are now above 80 years of age and gather at the sunset hour in Lodhi Gardens, discussing a number of controversial topics. This book reminisces nature and gives insight on the problems and intricacies faced in India.

    About Khushwant Singh

    Khushwant Singh was an Anglo-Indian writer, advocate, politician and journalist.

    A graduate of Government College, Lahore, St. Stephen's College in Delhi and King's College London, he read for the Bar at the Inner Temple and served as a practising lawyer for nearly fifteen years before entering journalism. He has worked with The Illustrated Weekly, The National Herald and Hindustan Times. A prolific writer, Mr. Singh wrote till the grand old age of 99, releasing his last work The Good, The Bad and The Ridiculous a few months before his passing in March 2014.

    Wonderful Novel

    It is really a great piece of work by Khushwant singh, even at this old age. I enjoy every piece o this novel. It describes wonderfully the events of 2009 and his views on that. Moreover, it shows the diversity and differences feel by people of one community or religion for another. No doubt, Khushwant Singh's favourite topic - sex is also there. But I like most his description of nature. And in the end, I feel the loneliness and sadness of Butta singh.So, in crux I can say that I throughly e...

    Khushwant in his sunset years is the best

    I am an old admirer of Khushwant Singh. His writings are so easy on your mind that you have a feel of fresh breeze. His Sunset club was finished by me in two sittings. What I liked about the book was his candid description of life, his self critique and how nicely he reconciles with his advancing age. The sane advice one can extract from the book is an added asset.
    As always his translation of Hindi and Urdu couplets is unmatched.
    How emotions flow from the core of his heart at the demise of...

    Excellent story teller

    Khushwant as usual came out as a excellent story teller. I was not expecting this much of fantasies he had about women. Portions of this book are very informative in some respect but majority of the story is about lust only.
    Nice to read a different thinking

    The Khush Khushwant

    As always the book comes with a tsunami of Unindianness(as always is the case with his books). And he does not give a damn about it. Wish it were not his last book. Love Khushwant's style.

    Its Khushwant Singh

    Khushwant Singh! The name itself is enough to pick up this one and read.. It was almost a autobiographical and was certainly great reading... The elderly have much to share about our own lives...

    Feel like In the Company of Oldies!A diary of an Old Man!

    I picked up this book, thinking it would be as fascinating as 'In the Company of Women' by KS. Alas! This book in simple words, is for a bunch of old people who are idle the entire day, are not a part of any clubs and need someone to converse with. I wouldn't say its a bore or a tasteless read, rather you can easily spot the KS style humor(based on how well an observer of humans he has been) and have few laughs often. However, it comes with a certain age bracket(and if you belong to it, you ...
