Durjoy Datta’s new novel to hit stands October 5

By Siddhi Jain

New Delhi, Oct 2 (udaipur kiran) Bestselling romance author Durjoy Datta is coming up with a new book ‘Wish I Could Tell You, which deals with the themes of modern love, online trolling and mental illness. The book is priced at Rs 199 and releases October 5.

‘Wish I Could Tell You’, is the story of Anusha, a disillusioned and heartbroken employee of a charity fundraising website, and Ananth, for whom no cause is too small to support.

“Behind them are teams for whom going to extraordinary lengths to save lives is more than a full-time occupation. In front of them is the virtual world of social media-watching, interacting, judging, making choices, and sometimes, saving lives,” Penguin, the publisher of the book, said in a statement.

The story is a “touching reminder of our times, a delicate and sensitive portrayal of teenage life and the devastating impact of social media”, said the publisher.

The book follows on the heel of Durjoy’s bestsellers “Of Course I Love You”, “She Broke Up, I Didn’t!”, “Someone Like You” and “The Boy Who Loved”. The Mumbai-based author also writes for television.
