In Beautiful Disguises

Rajeev Balasubramanyam

Life may not be easy for a sixteen-year-old girl living in small-town South India, especially when she’s blessed with a family like hers. When the inevitable marriage is arranged for her, fuelled by her dreams and Audrey Hepburn movies, she runs away to The City. Secretly hoping she will step right into the shoes of her favourite character, Holly Golightly, she enters the service of the benevolent Mr Aziz. Making new friends, she embraces this brave new world (acquiring a taste for croissants and champagne) but soon realises she can’t run forever...
