Of B&B is a magazine where we explore and examine literature with readers and writers, illustrators and publishers, speakers and scientists. From book reviews to studying the lives (sometimes rosy, sometimes tumultuous) of those who bring these books to life, we attempt to bring in-depth, unbiased narratives from the world of literature and literary criticism to you. Our commentary is based on both Indian as well as International works. From best-selling writers to bibliophiles, from critics to fans, from paperback purists to ebook enthusiasts, we hope to bring everyone into a single fold to obsess intellectually over matters of literature.
