9780140290479: The Company of Women

Separated recently from an ill tempered and wife who only nagged him for the past 13 years, rich businessman Mohan Kumar, chooses to give his life a new meaning. He has convinced himself that lust forms the basis of love. Kumar embarks on a daring plan - he will place an advertisement to pay women to share his life and bed, not always in that order. Thus begins his journey of unbridled and easy sexuality, with some of the most remarkable women Kumar ever came across. Sarojini Bharadwaj enters his life, a demure and coy university professor from a small town in Haryana, who surprises Kumar with her sexual energy and ardour. So does Molly Gomes, the vivacious masseuse from Goa, a mistress of sensual desire. Then there is Susanthika Goonatilleke, a diminutive Sri Lankan seductress. Kumar, after the end of each fling and before the beginning of the next, finds comfort in the seasoned charms of his obedient maid Dhanno and in memories of his past lovers. He is especially haunted by the American Jessica Browne, to whom he surrendered his virginity and Yasmeem Wanchoo, an older Pakistani woman. Ace writer Khushwant Singh writes about a seemingly endless celebration of passion, love and sex in The Company of Women. The book borders on electric eroticism but never transcends into soft porn. The book is available in paperback and was published in 2000.

BRAND NEW, perfect condition.

Review:

Simple and lucidly written. Good erotica with a bit of philosophy thrown in. Overall, a brisk and entertaining read. Late Khushwant Singh most underrated book probably. --By Alok Kumar Dash on 21 April 2014

The common perception among people regarding this book is that in it the author just keeps on narrating the sexual encounters and nothing else. This is not the case. There are a variety of emotions other than sex which the protagonist goes through and they have been beautifully expressed by the author. But, yes it is an erotic novel by a person who at the time of writing it was in his eighties! --By SiSwa on 8 May 2015

Strongly recommended. After reading this book, one will become a fan of great writer Khushwant singh. 100% worth of money --By Udham TOP 500 REVIEWER on 2 April 2014
