Deep Singh Blue Book Review – Deep Singh wants out of his family, his city
New Delhi, June 24 (IANS) Book: Deep Singh Blue; Author: Ranbir Singh Sidhu; Publisher: HarperCollins; Pages: 243; Price: Rs.499
Deep Singh wants out of his family, his city and more than anything – his life. His parents argue over everything, his dad passes his evening shouting at the television set, and his brother, who hasn’t said a single word in over a year, suddenly turns to him one day and tells him to die.
So, when Lily, older and married, shows him more than a flicker of attention, he falls heedlessly in love. It doesn’t help that Lily is an alcoholic, hates her husband and doesn’t think much of herself or her immigrant Chinese mom either. As Deep’s growing obsession with Lily begins to spin out of control, the rest of his life mirrors his desperation – culminating in his brother’s disappearance and an unfolding tragedy.
