MemoirsOfMyBodyShreya’s memoir will have arrived by suitcase from HarperCollins India, just in time for Shreya’s birthday tonight. No presents please, but do come along…

Shreya Sen-Handley wrote a wildly popular column about body parts and body fluids, flings and romantic encounters. As readers, young and old, began to write back to her, Shreya stepped back to think about it all: her body, her writing and her life. Intensely personal and utterly universal, this is a book about everything: masturbation and the first kiss, pregnancy and sagging breasts, the wrong man and the right man. It is a tale of triumphs and tragedies, injustices (on a global scale) and ecstasies (the little ones we can all identify with).

Funny, sad, serious and sometimes very, very rude, Memoirs of My Body is the story of one woman and of Everywoman too.
