Publisher's Summary

"A thrilling journey inwards as much as outwards.... A must-read." (Freida Pinto)

"How fortunate a thing it is, when life alters you without warning."

Lisa Ray is one of India's first supermodels. She's also an actor, a cancer survivor, a mother of twins through surrogacy. She is a woman who has lived many lives. And this is her story.

Close to the Bone is an unflinching, deeply moving account of Lisa Ray's life, tracing her childhood in Canada as the biracial daughter of an Indian man and a Polish woman, her rise as a popular Bollywood star and her battle with a rare, incurable cancer. Transporting and atmospheric, it takes listeners across the world, from Toronto in the 1970s, when Lisa was desperately trying to find place and purpose, to the intense, frenetic streets of Bombay, where, unmoored and lost, she began her film career; from the hot and sweaty sensuality of Colombo, a place where she finally began finding acceptance, to the romance of Holland Park in London.

At once funny, charming and gut-wrenchingly honest, Close to the Bone is Lisa Ray's brave and inspiring story of a life lived on her own terms.

Even better than reading it!

I had deeply enjoyed and been moved by the book. priceless for the insights on life, of one's sincerely reflected upon and observed Past, present and future. But hearing it is something else. I have heard a few chapters twice over. A beautiful voice and perfectly paced, with just the right inflections and so very personal. I think this is a book I will come back to hear again and again. Go for it!
