#1 Master of Mystery – Secret Window

Aren’t we all secret windows in ourselves?


Just as the titles start rolling, we enter the life of writer Mort Rainey (Johnny Depp) quite secretly through a window in his secluded house across a lake. Going through a rough divorce after he caught his wife cheating on him, Rainey’s daily life is nothing but moments of ennui. Apart from the view of a lake and what used to be a nice garden, there is nothing more left in the rusty life of the bestselling author.

But of course, life becomes much more interesting when John Shooter (John Turturro) knocks on his door accusing Rainey of “stealing his story”. Rainey takes a firm stand on his story being his original work and was published two years before Shooter wrote the story. Shooter accepts the possibility and asks for a copy of the magazine. He even agrees never to bother Rainey again if this is ture. But if Rainey…

The Politics of Life and Work

Is the world really that simple?

Let Go and Write!

Dear Diary,

I was reading a book about genetics, a fictional one of course, I am not the one to read science books and enjoy them unless I know what is being written about.

It has put me in a quandry. It talks about life after hundred thousand years, when mankind will be at the teetering point, with global warming at its peak, no food, rising sea levels and a pre-Dark Ages like scenario.

The book spoke about a Scientist who tries genetic modification to make humans co-operative and thus eliminate the possibility of fights altogether.

It really made me wonder about the superficial world we lived in and for how long this was going to continue. It was a scary prospect. We think the environment can be displaced and replaced but when will we realise that it cannot? All those weather variations which are unnatural? That isn’t good. When…

The Synopsis reads

Every time Samantha went back to her flat, John’s words rang through her head-“I can’t live with you any more-I’ve got to get out’. He’d been seeing another woman, and now she was promising him one thing Sam couldn’t give: a child. The man she had shared her life with, her love and laughter had lied to her

When the agency gave her four months on a ranch she thought they were crazy. Did they think a holiday would change her? She knew she was wild and untameable, a lone free Palomino- until she met the man who could break any horse on the range, and entered a world of endless and enduring love……

Palomino tells the story of one woman’s extraordinary journey to find happiness, and the strength, courage and love she discovers on the way

The story intrigued me at…

John Grisham’s reputation as an author of  legal crime thrillers much influenced my choice as i picked up The Summons from the library. The synopsis reads

“Ray Atlee is a professor of law at the University of Virginia. He’s forty-three, newly single, and still enduring the aftershocks of a surprise divorce. He has a younger brother, Forrest, who redefines the notion of a family’s black sheep.

And he has a father, a very sick old man who lives alone in the ancestral home in Clanton, Mississippi. He is known to all as Judge Atlee, a beloved and powerful official who has towered over local law and politics for forty years. No longer on the bench, the Judge has withdrawn to the Atlee mansion and become a recluse.

With the end in sight, Judge Atlee issues a summons for both sons to return home to Clanton, to discuss the details of…
