Author Girish Kohli’s imaginative satire, Marathon Baba climbs up the Nielsen Top 50 Bestseller chart

I’m thrilled to share with you that Fingerprint Publishing’s first title, Marathon Baba has made its debut at No. 13 on the Nielsen’s Top 50 Bestseller charts in India, beating bestsellers by Rashmi Bansal, Paulo Coelho, Robin Sharma, Durjoy Dutta and others.
This is a significant achievement for both Fingerprint and debutant author Girish Kohli. Readers across the country have taken a liking to this new genre of psychedelic fiction, calling it the most imaginative Indian satire on idol-worship and religion.

Marathon Baba is a tale about the cult of a man who could neither stop running, nor prevent millions from making a god out of him. Girish Kohli has cleverly depicted our country’s fascination with religion and God. Seldom has any author portrayed Indian eccentricities as brilliantly as Kohli has done in this crackling debut. Kohli is clearly a fresh, witty voice in the Indian publishing landscape.

Do let me know if are interested in receiving a review copy and/ or doing an interview with the author. Look forward to see the book’s review soon in your esteemed publication.
