Cut Like Wound by Anita Nair is a remarkable departure in genre by the much-acclaimed author of books like Lessons in Forgetting, The Better Man and Ladies Coupe. This is a psycho-thriller, and to give due credit to the author, there is adequate suspense to keep readers engrossed throughout. Exposed here is the sleazier side of Bengaluru, in its murky back-lanes. It also offers a close look at the transgender community….Excellent, and hopefully, start of a series of novels featuring Borei Gowda.
