Onam In a Nightie: Stories from A Kerala Quarantine is the debut creative narrative by Anjana Menon. Based in a small town in Kerala, it chronicles the story of the author trapped in her parent’s home in a state she had never lived in. The book revolves around the town and its people and takes the reader on a humorous, uplifting and pacy read that has been acclaimed by critics as a modern-day Malgudi Days.

Anjana Menon has been wrestling with words for as long as she can remember. After studying literature, she got sucked into a journalism career that took her to Southeast Asia and Europe with Bloomberg News.

She returned to India as one of the founder-editors of the business newspaper Mint and then ran a television newsroom before setting up her own content strategy consultancy. She is a co-author of What's Your story. The Essential Business Storytelling Handbook published by Penguin Random House. A columnist who thought she would grow up to be an artist, she likes people more than gadgets, dogs even more than people and slow life over hurried living
