About the Book: Drama Queen So bizarre its got to be true. Actor, singer, writer, painter, candlestick maker. A successful debut Bollywood film with mega-star Shah Rukh Khan; marriage to internationally renowned filmmaker Shekhar Kapur; a pop album with music by Andrew Lloyd Weber; walking the red carpet at the Oscars?What more could any young girl with stars in her eyes aspire to? In this candid, wacky, fictionalized memoir, Suchitra Krishnamoorthi dips in and out of her life, taking us on a ride through a hormone-driven period, five years post marriage, divorce, fame and everything that a girl from a decent Indian family would want. A single mother suffering from Aphallatosis, a rare mental disorder arising from lack of sex (a typical result of her strict, moral, middle-class upbringing) Suchitra hurtles on a rollercoaster journey in a desperate bid to find security and true love-in the process, rediscovering her relationship with her mother, her past and, most importantly, herself-and emerging with a new voice, long-suppressed and lost under the perplexing burden of conforming to Im a good girl-I am. Candid, irrepressible and irreverent, Drama Queen will make you laugh, cry, and look at the modern Indian woman in a whole new light?
