Sujatha was the pseudonym of Tamil author S. Rangarajan, one of the most popular authors in Tamil literature; his literary career spanned more than four decades. Of his many works, Anita—A Trophy Wife (Ilam Manaivi) was one of the most well-known.

Featuring Advocate Ganesh, of the author’s Ganesh–Vasanth duo, the novel describes the strained relationship between a middle-aged man and a beautiful young woman in poignant and simple terms.It brings out the nuances of a power struggle, while retaining the humour and wit that is a trademark of Sujatha’s novels.

At one level a detective story and, at another, a psychological humdinger, in Sujatha’s deft telling, this story acquires a timelessness. Ably translated by Meera Ravishankar, the book is quintessential Sujatha—gripping, perceptive and superbly written.

Sujatha (1935–2008) was one of the most popular authors in Tamil literature and his literary career spanned more than four decades. Widely-read and knowledgeable, his versatility and exhaustive range were his unique selling points.

Writing in simple and lucid Tamil, Sujatha made a tremendous impact with his contemporary and racy writing, and his radical and original ideas. His experiments with different genres, and the dramatic narration of ordinary, everyday events won him his audience and many accolades. His works stood out at a time when Tamil writing was dominated by social and family dramas and historical novels. His identification with the masses, and his depiction of their way of talking, behaviour, mindset, dialect and slang, helped make him popular across multiple demographic segments.
