Published in over seventeen countries around the world, Ladies Coup is 'one of the most important feminist novels to come out of South Asia' (Daily Telegraph) disguised as an entertaining, delightful read. Akhila is forty-five and single, an income-tax clerk, and a woman who has always been the backbone of her impossibly demanding family-until the day she gets herself a one-way ticket to a resort town. In the intimate atmosphere of the all-women sleeping car-the Ladies Coup-Akhila asks the five women the question that has been haunting her all her adult life: can a woman stay single and be happy, or does she need a man to feel complete? This wonderfully warm novel is the story of a group of women who find comfort and strength in sharing the details of their lives.
