About this title

Synopsis:

I had the idea, from books and movies, that love was a disease that afflicted only the young and the beautiful, and that this was something I had escaped, on a technicality. I was too thin, too dark. But now I realized I would never be free of its dangers; that I might make a fool of myself for love at any time, from now into the distant future. This collection of eight short stories traces the life of a dancer through the years. In the seventies, she is sent, as a teenager, from Canada to study dance in India, away from the corrupting influences of the West. She finds, instead, a world of sensuality beyond anything previously experienced. She meets a movie star, goes on bike rides with boys she doesn t know, and learns about the perils of falling in love from the plight of an older, revered man. Time and again, she comes back to India, as a wife and a mother, to rediscover the earthiness and passion of her youth. Gitanjali Kolanad transforms fragments of life into stories of love, infidelity and betrayal with the grace, elegance and effortless ease of a classical dancer. Sleeping with Movie Stars is a compelling and erotic read.
