Welcome to the world of whiskers & purrs


Book title: The Wildings
Author: Nilanjana Roy
Illustrations by: Prabha Mallya
Publisher: Aleph Book Company
Pages: 351

Well-known columnist and editor Nilanjana Roy’s first attempt at fiction, ‘The Wildings’, overtakes the mundane and goes on to decipher feline tendencies – whisker twitches, purrs, snarls and more. A fine dissection of animal behaviour, most of which is akin to us humans, the book is a vivid read, owing to Roy’s allegorical narration and Prabha Mallya’s illustrations in gray scale.
