Publisher's Summary

My Story is an autobiographical book written by Indian author and poet Kamala Das (also known as Kamala Surayya or Madhavikutty). The book was originally published in Malayalam, titled Ente Katha. The book evoked violent reactions of admiration and criticism among readers and critics. It remains to date the best-selling woman's autobiography in India.

My Story is a chronologically ordered, linear narrative written in a realist style. In the book, Das recounts the trials of her marriage and her painful self-awakening as a woman and writer. The entire account is written in the format of a novel. Though My Story was supposed to be an autobiography, Das later admitted that there was plenty of fiction in it.

Poignant

I could summarize My Story with this word. You feel
sad once the nook ends after being part of the authors life for so long. Very nicely narrated. The last one and half hours are the best part of the book..Though the beginning is little slow I am glad I continued till the end . A wonderful tale to listen.. feel and be so close to the life of Mrs Kamala Das....

A life journeying through illimitable sufferings.

Koliyot's expression and Das' confession did enrich the capricious cognizance of an English Honours dilettante.

Good book, slow narration

Great book, but the narration was slow and monotonous in some places. The language is simple yet poetic.
