More waiting for Bhairappa’s Avarana

SL Bhairappa’s latest novel, Avarana was slated for release in the city yesterday, and rest of the world a little white later. I was hoping to get hold of a copy, but it looks like all copies of the first set of prints have been pre-sold and there is none available in the market! My guess is that most of the copies would have got sold in the US, as the publishers Sahitya Bhandara have a good sales network and online presence in the country.

VK reports(the page is mixed with another story..) that more copies will be made available in the city on Feb 9th, but knowing how Bhairappa’s works sell, you would be better off reserving a copy if your book vendor gives you such an option.

    I am longing to read Avarana ! Nirakarane, Nayi Neralu & Anveshane are my all time favorites of SLB.

    I got a copy fairly easily on 9th. It’s best to go directly to sahitya bhandara at Balepet.

    I will not play the spoiler by posting a review /preview.

    getting the book is out of question.
    just read the sudheendra nadig’s review.
    this explains the Tipu analysis last year.

    promises too be a good read.

    Avarana is a state of art work. SLB is a geinus writer.
    If any body wants to know real history of India one should read it.

    It’s one of the best literary works connected with the history that I have read. Each comments about the society, religion, and people are well supported by authenticated documents. By 24th 4th edition was ready for release. This shows people no more want to believe the distorted history based on the assumptions of today’s histrorians about the past. Also one commonly believed myth got busted that “in karnataka the trend of buying and reading kannada books is not there”. Any good literary work which touches the heart easily sells itself. Reader’s will do the job of advertizing/promoting. Really worth keeping a personal copy and reading it.
