"Mutilating Women" - - a suspense novel by Anoop Chandola released by Black Opal Books on January 19, 2019

January 19, 2019, Tucson: Anoop Chandola’s novel MUTILATING WOMEN (ISBN 9781644370698) about sexually assaulted women before ME-TOO. From Black Opal Books.

TUCSON, AZ, UNITED STATES, January 14, 2019 / -- Black Opal Books (U.S.A.) announces the release of Anoop Chandola’s multicultural suspense novel “Mutilating Women” on January 19, 2019.

Mutilating Women is a suspense story of an honor crime. It follows members of the Kotwal Clan during the chaotic months before and after Indian Independence in 1947, a time of upheaval and of hope. The members of this Himalayan clan would be termed liberal/progressive in their stance toward the many issues they faced: from questions of equality for women and untouchables, to the role of religion in thwarting both and changing marriage practices to what modernization might look like for India. However, this book, based on the fictional interviews with the offspring of some of the “characters,” is an accurate portrayal of the many obstacles the people of India faced during this time—the cultural and psychological barriers that confronted them at every turn. The cover of the novel suggests how some sexually assaulted women connected with the Kotwal clan took raw revenge long before the ME-TOO revolution of sexually assaulted women.

Anoop Chandola, an American linguist-anthropologist, was raised in a priestly Brahmin family in India near the Nepal-Tibet border.

More information about him is available in Wikipedia.
