Half Girlfriend - Chetan Bhagat (Paperback)
Half Girlfriend is an Indian English
coming of age, young adult romance novel by Indian author Chetan Bhagat. The
novel, set in rural Bihar, New Delhi, Patna, and New York, is the
story of a Bihari boy in quest of winning over the girl he loves. This is
Bhagat's sixth novel which was released on 1 October 2014 by Rupa
Publications. The novel has also been published in Hindi and Gujarati versions
as well. A Hindi film adaptation released on 19 May 2017. Dedicated to "non
English-types", as Chetan Bhagat wrote, the book divulges the sentiments
and linguistic struggles of a backward rural Bhojpuri-laced Hindi-speaking boy
from Bihar as he enrolls himself at the prestigious English-medium St.
Stephen’s College, New Delhi, and falls in love with a
"high class English-speaking rich Delhi girl" schooled at Modern
School, New Delhi. The girl does not admit the relationship but agrees to
be his "half girlfriend". Chetan Bhagat commented,
"Half-Girlfriend, to me, is a unique Indian phenomenon, where boys and girls are not
clear about their relationship status with each other.
