Publisher's Summary

"Though I am nothing to look at, it is women who have sought my company more than I have sought theirs." (Khushwant Singh)

In Khushwant Singh's Book of Unforgettable Women, India's most widely read and irreverent author and columnist profiles some of the many women in his life.

From Ghayoorunnisa Hafeez, the girl who forever changed his attitude toward Muslims, to his wife, Kaval Malik, who is allergic to media publicity; from his old grandmother to the controversial artist Amrita Shergil; from Mother Teresa to Phoolan Devi, Khushwant Singh paints colorful and true-to-life portraits of the women he has known, loved, despised, admired, and lived with.

The audiobook also includes some of the women Khushwant Singh has conjured up in the numerous stories and novels he has written over 60 years. The lively Martha Stack (Black Jasmine); Lady Mohan Lal ("Karma"); Jean Memsahib ("The Memsahib of Mandla"); the hijra-whore, Bhagmati (Delhi); the insatiable Champak (I Shall Not Hear the Nightingale), dark-eyed Nooran (Train to Pakistan) and the free-spirited Molly Gomes (The Company of Women) are only a few of Khushwant Singh's larger-than-life characters who are sure to entertain and amuse the listener.

Nice narration but evey story needs a separation

the separation needs more perfect,maybe a little bit of music would do justice to it. Wish I was there to monitor the recording.
