Seven Sixes are Forty-Three (Saat Sakkam Trechalis)
Seven Sixes are Forty-Three is the first book by Kiran Nagarkar. I haven't read it yet, just found it today on Amazon. The excerpt is very good, so I will be purchasing and reading this book immediately. In the opening scene, a guy comes home drunk. He beats and rapes his wife. Then she covers herself in kerosene, lights herself on fire, and then tries to hug him. Beautiful.
