Dark Things – A fantasy novel set in a world populated by Yakshis, Gandharvas, Apsaras and Blood Queens finds its feet in Mumbai yesterday as actress Vidya Balan launched the book before media and audiences lending her support to former journalist and debut novelist Sukanya Venkatraghavan. One of the most exciting fiction debuts of this year, Dark Things, published by Hachette India is a heady concoction of fantasy and romance.
At the book launch, Sukanya shared a lovely tete-a-tete with Vidya discussing her experience of writing the book, what inspired her and her love for the fantasy genre.
Catch some pictures of the event:
Vidya appreciated the book at the event and said, “I’m loving reading Dark Things. Sukanya’s vivid imagination and imagery transports you to a realm where you no longer know the difference between the real and the fantastical. The writing is absolutely exciting and reminds me of J.R.R.Tolkien.”
