Woman In Red

From someone who has embraced the inner bitch for over ten years, I can say this with some authority: what a nice line in bitchiness Aatish Taseer has! The poster-boy memoirist/novelist has recently put up a “self-interview” on the net, giving him an excuse to talk of his favourite things: his books, his father and authors he loathes. The third is obviously what has his readers hooked, especially when he unsheaths his claws about “a certain writer-cum-activist on the Left”: “That woman” with her “prurient fascination with the enemies of India”, who writes “bogus cant” which is “perfectly banal”.
