Deepti Naval embodies the remarkable multi-hyphenate talents of actor, poet, photographer and director. And now a debut book of short stories, inspired by real incidents, is the latest addition to her impressive resume.

Through the prism of life emerges Naval's "The Mad Tibetan: Stories From Then and Now", a collection of 11 short stories. Each story carries the visual and emotional impact, and vivacity of a film.

While 'Thulli' draws one deep into the sordid and bleak life of a prostitute in Mumbai, 'The Piano Tuner' gently tugs at the heart with music. 'Ruth Mayberry' inspires with her never-say-die spirit, yet grapples with loneliness. 'D', 'The Morning After', 'Bombay Central', 'The Mad Tibetan', 'Premonition', 'Sisters', 'Birds', 'Balraj Sahni' are all life itself – each speaks in a voice that is resonant and alive with feelings of hope, love and joy of another day.
