The Bombay Prince by Sujata Massey Part One
We discuss chapters 1-12 of Sujata Massey’s ‘The Bombay Prince‘, the third novel in the Perveen Mistry series. A young Freny Cuttingmaster visits Perveen at her office, inquiring about her legal options for avoiding the procession of Prince Edward. When Perveen goes to see the procession days later, Freny’s corpse is found with her head smashed in, and the local police begin carelessly preparing to assume suicide. The last stop in our Indian tour for 2022 brings all the familiar sights and sounds back to the table as Perveen sets about bringing justice for Freny and her family.
Ahead of the 2022 Sydney Writers’ Festival, we’re joined by author Dinuka McKenzie to discuss her novel ‘The Torrent’, and the turbulent journey to motherhood for its protagonist. Catch Dinuka in conversation with Suzanne Leal, Jane Caro, and Laura Elizabeth Woollett for ‘Mother of All Crimes‘ at the festival on the 20th of May.
