Em and the Big Hoom was gifted to me about 3 years ago. I remember being excited about it but I hadn’t really paid attention to the cover. And since then, it sat on my shelf, staring half-hopefully, half-forlornly at me. It is only yesterday that I thought, “Enough is enough. I cannot go on neglecting this book that I’ve heard so much about.” Thinking thus, I pulled out the book and it was then that the beauty of the cover struck me.
Last month, I read Aashish Gupta’s debut novel, Demons in My Mind, loved it, and wanted to do an interview with him. He very kindly obliged and answered all my questions.
The reviews of Demons in My Mind had me intrigued for a long time and the blurb, even more so. The book stayed on my Amazon wish list for quite a while before it made its way to me. I was absolutely ecstatic. I couldn’t wait to start reading it, though, of course, schedules.
