    Description

    Truth, Love & A Little Malice is an autobiographical account of the journey of the famous writer, journalist and columnist, Khushwant Singh. The book delves deep into the family roots of the writer moving forth to his professional life, giving detailed accounts of his relations with political dignitaries.

    Summary Of The Book

    Marked by a deep personal touch and a classic blend of quick witted humour and detailed analysis of the author’s personal experiences in his personal and professional journey, Truth, Love & A Little Malice may be described as a controversial yet bold attempt by the writer to unabashedly bring to light his personal life experiences.

    The book has Singh tracing his familial roots and talking about his family legacy. The book opens up and outgrows into further detailed images of the author’s meetings with political dignitaries. As he openly discusses those meetings with his unique wit, the reader is bound to be surprised yet amazed by his approach.

    Being exposed to many post independent events in India, and closely attached politically as a journalist and columnist, the author reveals the deepest secrets of Indian political history in a very different from what we know it as. An example would be when he talks about the welcoming of Maneka Gandhi, as a daughter-in-law into the Gandhi family.

    Truth, Love & A Little Malice marks the eventful journey of a bold writer from outside and from within and also reveals details about his first ever relationship and the intimacy surrounding it. The author does not for a minute bother to care about himself or his image and projects himself as a man who has made mistakes in his life.

    The book was first published in the year 2002.

    Value-for-money

    I've always been meaning to read Khushwant Singh's autobiography. The book was delivered to me in three days time. It's a hefty book with tiny letterings. That was my only disappointment. Apart from it, the packaging and delivery was all fine.

    Great buy!

    Khushwant is as usual as amazing as ever. How he mixes his life events with the turbulent and restive times is spectacular. A must read.

    So well written - experience the joy of reading

    By far amongst the best books I have ever read. What an honest work, I was intrigued by the authors outstanding narration, his remarkably unique style filled with immense (spontaneous) humor on situations, people, places...makes a joy out of anything you are reading. Anybody who finds reading books as a mundane exercise should grab hold of some of the authors title and there you are...

    Late Shri Khuswant Singh ji - what an admirable author... he will be always remembered for all his works

    One of the best books

    I read this years ago and still remember the effect it had on me. It's written incredibly well by a brutally honest man unafraid to call a spade a spade. Insightful too as you get a glimpse of the India of bygone days. A must-read for book lovers!

    RIP to a great writer.
