Overview for Brunching with Ophelia

Brunching with Ophelia presents a slice of life entrenched in cultural schizophrenia in our capital city, New Delhi. As Ivy Roy, a lecturer of English literature, virtually resurrects Ophelia, the almost aphasic woman behind theuniversal man screaming "Words, Words, Words", her now husband and erstwhile chat-friend Shumonto Roy retreats into the deep well of wordlessness, mourning the loss of his ex-girlfriend Irene Scott. Is Shumonto turning into a later-day Prince hamlet of the virtual world? Will today's  Ophelia speak up, turn into a voracious wordsmith to counter his oppressive silence? Suddenly the characters who has met in a nebulous world of the INternet are confronted by the perils of the real. Which is the fantasy world? or do they inhabit a placeless space somewhwere in between? Do they live multiple lives births to newer selves every time they give themselves a new screen name? In her debut novel, the Author lets loose a refraction of university life, heavily colored by pigments of imaginations. And the refracting prism of this overground campus life is the netherworld of anonymous chat-windows and webcam-facuilitated screen-dalliances.

  • Amazing Insight in to the virtual world

    (More than year ago) By, Justice Chowdhury

    The writer is a wizard of words.She has weaved the words to make a virtual world of those who live in the world of chat yet live out of it a life as well.The distinction is often blurred and you feel you are in a virtual world yourself and can relate to the characters. If you consider yourself an intelligent person this book will feed your intellectual appetite.I only wish the cover was not out of Hitchcocks closet with that stark red Ophelia. I first thought it was a horror story, but I am so pleasantly surprised.
