Based on actual events, 'The Story of My Assassins' tells the story of a journalist who learns that the police have captured five hitmen on their way to kill him. Blowing apart the relative comfort of his former life, just as he's started upon a steamy affair with a brilliant woman, the news prompts him to launch an urgent investigation into the lives of his would-be murderers. A piercing enquiry into both severe poverty and obscene wealth, it takes us on a journey into the heart of today's India. Tarun Tejpal is a journalist, publisher, novelist and founder of Tehelka, one of India's leading news magazines. Nobel Prize winner, V.S. Naipaul has said of the author that, 'In the profoundest way he writes for India.' Join us for an evening talk, where the author will be discussing his new book and signing copies. Tickets cost £3 and can be obtained by telephoning or visiting the Customer Service Department, Second Floor, Blackwell Bookshop, Oxford. 01865 333623. (BallroomDancer)
