Penguin Random House is Proud To Present Banaras Talkies by the best-selling, award- winning writer Satya Vyas

One of India’s greatest coming-of-age novels, Banaras Talkies follows a trio of three friends as they navigate undergraduate college life, filled with ups and downs, stealing exam papers, struggling to speak to women, and forging friendships that will last a lifetime over bad mess food. This story is relatable and reminiscent to many people who would love to soak in the nostalgia of their own campus experience through this book.

As a slice-of-life novel, Banaras Talkies captures the struggles, aspirations, and lives of young Indians through the idiomatic flourish that is the hallmark of Banarasi colloquialism from the halls of one of India’s most vibrant colleges, Banaras Hindu University
