Dear All,

For those of us who are constantly flummoxed, beguiled or sometimes , err, debased in our quest for love and have to resort to works of D.H. Lawrence or Gustave Flaubert or Vladimir Nabokov to fathom the rules of engagement around Love, Lust or Loathe, here's one more book that tries to explore the "Higgs Boson" of human life: "What draws two people together?"

Indian Author Makarand Paranjape's latest book "Body Offering" brings together a middle aged couple and a young editor in a wild frenzy of carnal "jugal-bandi". And, as per the blurb, it questions "What is the quintessence of human coupling—desire, fear, need, or just habit? Is love a hormonal reflex or a romantic fantasy? Does it enchain or set free? Can carnal passion reveal deeper realities?"

So, if you have loved "Lady Chatterley's Lover" or "Sons and Lovers" or "Madame Bovary" or say "Lolita", you might also enjoy this one.

One note of caution though: this is no E.L. James or Harold Robbins novel.

Best,
Neel.
