    Know your neta
    All seasons, Online
    Shashi Warrier’s book, The Pillow Talk Movies, revolves around Naresh Gupta, an ageing MP with documents that can ruin any big politician, his son who wants to become the president, a Pakistani spy who is too comfortable in India to go home, and a cross-dressing teacher. All of them contribute to this biting political satire, making it the perfect weekend read. Heavily borrowing from real life, don’t forget to read the preface which sums it all up. Published by Westland Ltd. At Rs 295. Details: amazon.in
