I had lunch with Ms Roy and a girl colleague from Kerala in 1997 or 1998. She came to NY to do a book reading on that book, and sorted of hinted that the work was part autobiography. She was a tiny good looking girl and into fitness. I think she did aerobics classes or was a runner. She gave me a signed copy of the book and I loaned it out and never got it back. Last time I lending out a book!
