Book Review: You Beneath Your Skin, by Damyanti Biswas

Looking back over the years, I think thrillers would be the genre I have read most. For the most recent episode of our podcast, my friends and I had chosen Indian thrillers as the theme.

It’s challenging enough to write a thriller from the perspective of a normal person, but to write it from the viewpoint of a woman diagnosed with agoraphobia is another level. There’s restrictions based on the fear, and society as we know it doesn’t always accept such a fear as normal, and by extension, the person as well, so that character involved in a crime brings other aspects into the picture.
