Neti, Neti by Anjum Hasan

I am a sucker for anything with a Shillong connection. And Neti, Neti by Anjum Hasan is a well written book. It was shortlisted for the Man Asian Literary Prize 2008. According to the website of the prize:

Twenty-five-year-old Sophie Das has moved from Shillong to Bangalore in search of work, fun and liberty. Neti, Neti’s action follows an increasingly alienated Sophie and her free-spirited friends through offices, pubs, night streets, shopping malls, rock concerts, and the homes of Bangalore’s neo-rich. A shocking murder and an infatuation send Sophie back to the small town of her youth.
