This book is not for those who believe in happily ever after tales. It’s brilliantly creepy, violent and extremely offensive in nature. It preaches a cult philosophy against an emasculating consumerist culture.
The story is a brilliant mix of transgressed elements held together by dirty realism. It focuses on characters who feel confined by the norms and expectations of society and who break free of those confines in unusual or illicit ways. Because they are rebelling against the basic norms of society, protagonists may seem mentally ill, anti-social, or nihilistic. The book deals extensively with taboo subject matters such as drugs, sexual activity, violence, pedophilia and crime.
About the Author
Broken Radio is Nishant’s big debut. What began as an impromptu rebellious speech for his friend slowly transformed into a captivating transgressive fiction novella. He’s currently working on his untitled sophomore effort. We can’t wait to see what realistic monster he gives birth to next!
Nishant has a degree in English literature from University of Delhi. Previously a writer of corporate communications, he happily traded in his 9-to-5 gig for a rewarding career as a novelist. The best part: working from his studio, he gets to spend more time with his friends inside his head.
