During the last few months my online and offline searches for inspirational books many a time ended up in this book. But there was something about the cover and the title that stopped me from giving it a try. I also had no idea who this celebrated author was till i started listening to her Audiobook. This is the story of a Canadian girl of Indian origin Lilly Singh Aka Superwoman gradually growing to one of the World's highest paid Youtubers. There are some authentic tips in the book for becoming a 'Bawse'. it is worth a one time read

Lincoln in the Bardo cover art

Lincoln in the Bardo is a Booker winning experimental novel by George Saunders. The plot of the novel is the death of Willy, the 11 year old son of President Lincoln. Willy, unwilling to be parted from his dear father moves to Bardo, where he is accompanied by many other ghosts of independent existence. Besides, the novel is filled with excerpts from hundreds of history books, biographies, old journals and even a few unpublished personal diaries with little continuity. Overall the novel was very much beyond my level of comprehension.

This is the story of an eighteen year old girl inspite of considering herself non political, non heroic or even non interesting, becomes the centre of all rumours in "their part of the city" after her first encounter with the "Milkman". The narrative unwinds without addressing a single place or character by a proper nown and without proper reference to the actual period of the plot, making it universal and surprisingly a lot more interesting.
