"The story of the daughter of renowned writer Gauri Deshpande. A beautiful blend of truth and fiction, the biography will keep you spellbound. Ginny slips through the cracks of her parent's divorce and grows up like a weed, undernourished in motherly love and over nourished in all the wrong ways. Ginny is potent, addictive, and as delicious and nutritious as nicotine. Sometimes tragic and sometimes funny, but always sexy Ginny falls in love as regularly as she smokes ganja, improvising her way through her times with honesty and compulsive joy and very little morality of the conventional type. This Pack of Lies is one woman's raw and ruthless look at her own unlikely life in Bombay in the 1980's."
