About The Book

At any given point, news is breaking somewhere. The dynamics are fascinating, the lives hectic, the demands never-ending. But what`s going on inside a TV news channel? When the egos take over and the drive to succeed wipes out all else, identity crises, paranoia and insecurity take their toll. A prematurely ageing drama queen, a melodramatic friend and a carefree Casanova . friendship flies out the window, as events take on a life of their own and their world starts to unravel. Death, betrayal, conspiracy theories and drama galore. Broken News is a work of fiction, but stabs at the truth of fractured identities and misplaced priorities in the glittering world of television news

About The Author

Amrita Tripathi is a broadcast journalist based in New Delhi. She has worked in print, doesn t take sides in the print vs TV journalism debate, and holds Bachelor s and Master s degrees in Philosophy from St. Stephens College, Delhi University. Twelve years in the city, and having lived in every possible corner at some point or other, she s finally given in to the fact that she s not just passing through . She has no knack for potted plants or interior decoration, but seems to serve as a homing beacon for loud grey pigeons. Writing has been in her bloodstream since she was at least fifteen, when she rather presumptuously began work on her autobiography … a work in progress that fed the ego, but was shelved fairly soon. Broken News is her debut novel.
