This book is compilation of short stories and life events of Khushwant Singh, some are very interesting and some of them bit dull. Please don't go on the title its not only sex that Mr. K is talking about but the how it's interpreted in Indian way of life. Books starts with Mr. K's history and he is tries his best to remove allegations like womanizer or drunked from him and further it touches the life events and learning of his life. Later in the end some good historical references from gurbani ...more

My first Khushwant Singh book, loved it! Recommended!
I found the political memoirs a bit extended, probably because political stuff generally puts me to sleep. His recollections about the khalistan movement was informative to me, hadn't read about it much. Good story teller btw, Looking forward to read some more of his!

provocative title- content of the book not reflective of this. short stories -biographical . the usual KS sharp wit and keen perception of people, places and things. not his best book but I had fun reading it.

People have not rated this book among the very best of Khushwant Singh but I find this book to be quite an interesting one to read.
It has some very good short essays and stories and real life political incidents and being a political guy I enjoyed it thoroughly.
Some of the essays were a bit boring specially where he starts to dwell on God too much, understandable of him being an agnostic.

It is more of 3.5/5 from my side.

I'll get straight to it. This is a very poor collection of stories of Khushwant Singh. The man has written a large number of pretty amazing pieces and to this collection seems to have taken out only the weakest of the lot. If you're a fan of the author, keep the happy memories of reading his book alive and avoid Sex, Scotch and Scholarship.
