Pune January 22, 2019: Ahmed Faiyaz, bestselling author of Another Chance and Scammed, has launched his comeback comic satire, aptly titled “Bestseller” at Crosswords Aundh today.
“Bestseller” has an entertaining and unique plot. It depicts the inside happenings of the publishing industry in a very humorous tone. The theme is set within the first few pages of the book when the protagonist has one year to turn around a failing publishing business.
The story is about Akshay who is sent to Mumbai from London in order to attempt to revive Kalim Publishing, a company that was once at the top but is now in deep trouble. He has to find a way of making a success out of books he would never publish or would never even read. To complicate things further, he has to contend with a motley crew of has-beens and misfits working for the publishing house as well as wannabe writers, dealing with their follies and derisive tactics, and battle his own affections for Zorah Kalim, the impulsive daughter of his former boss.
Will he succeed in bringing out that one ‘bestseller’ from his publishing house? And what about his own life and love in office? Find out in this riveting read. The author has depicted the way things work in the publishing industry by way of Akshay’s struggles.
Ahmed Faiyaz was born and raised in Bengaluru and completed his studies in Pune. He has also written the bestselling Love, life & all that jazz, Another Chance and Scammed, and is the editor of Urban Shots series.
Speaking at the book launch event, Ahmed Faiyaz said- “Apart from being a passionate writer, I enjoy film-making and traveling to lesser-known destinations to better understand life and the times we live in.” He lives and works in Dubai, with his two boys and their tabby cat named, Bob.
