What a darling little monster Susanna is! What happened to Susanna's seven husbands and why, in the name of God, did she have to marry seven times? Some questions, the narrator leads you through, helping you find out the answers, and discover utter madness, passion, and envy, in shades as never before seen nor heard of.
Carved in Ruskin's exquisite style, this is a whole new ball game altogether. World's apart from his regular genres, Susanna's Seven Husbands is the coming to life of Ruskin's style in a whole new light, as never before experienced, and just how cleverly! It is not only his mindfulness that keeps the reader intrigued but the savage exquisiteness of say, the prose, the story-telling, the bewitching protagonist, or the macabre aura lurking through the settings and scenic ambiances, that will not only thrill the reader at every turn, but hold them by the scruff of their neck and plunge them head-first into the pool of unfurling dark drama, page after page.
This edition also included Film Director Vishal Bharadwaj's screenplay for the movie 7 Khoon Maaf, an adaptation of the novella Susanna's Seven Husbands.
