Chosen Spirits by Samit Basu

Chosen Spirits by Samit Basu is a work of fiction. The book is all ready to hit the shelves on 19th May 2020. It will be published by Simon and Schuster.

She’d decided, that night, that she wouldn’t leave. That she would stay in India, in Delhi, and belong as hard as she could. Joey is a Reality Controller, in charge of the Livestream of a charismatic and problematic celebrity in smog-choked, water-short, ever-transforming Delhi – a city on the brink of revolution, under the shadow of multiple realities and catastrophes – at the end of the 2020s.

When Joey impulsively rescues a childhood friend, Rudra, from his new-elite family and the comfortable, horrific life they have chosen for him, she sets into motion a chain of events — a company takeover, a sex scandal, a series of betrayals — that disintegrates not just their public and private selves, but the invisible walls that divide the city around them. To find the lives they need, Joey and Rudra must reckon with people and forces beyond their understanding, in a world where trust is impossible, popularity is conformity, and every wall has eyes.
