Twinkle Khanna wants women to be comfortable

Friday, August 10, 2018

Author Twinkle Khanna’s upcoming book ‘Pyjamas are Forgiving’ is up for release in September, writes Elle magazine. Twinkle is interviewed in the August issue of the magazine by literary festival-colleague Moni Mohsin who says that when she first met Twinkle they were both speakers at a LitFest and that she’d expected loads of attitude from the star-wife. However, to Moni’s surprise they soon became good friends. Subsequently Moni was asked to read a few chapters from ‘Pyjamas are Forgiving’ and to interview the author for ‘Elle’. While Moni has it figured out that Twinkle’s new book is about what it means to be a professionally successful middle-aged woman, unhitched and childless in a society that defines women purely as mothers and wives, she also realises that in line with the author’s first two books – ‘Mrs Funnybones’ and ‘The Legend of Laxmi Prasad’ – it will be quirky and humorous. In their interview, Twinkle says, among other things, that it is when she is finishing a book, in those last few months, that she finds that her ability to concentrate on anything else vanishes. At that point, she is at her desk for 10-12 hours a day. Everything and everyone including her children (and this remains a constant source of guilt for her) turn into white noise. Adds Twinkle about the relevance of the book’s title: “In a world of skinny jeans, the pyjama woman is someone who finds a way to be comfortable in her own skin.” We like!
