About the Book:
Perfect for fans of Jojo Moyesâs, Me Before You, My Last Love Story is a heartbreakingly romantic tale about the complexities of trauma and whether love can right a wrong.
I, Simeen Desai, am tired of making lemonade with the lemons life has handed me.
Love is meant to heal wounds.
Love was meant to make my world sparkle and spin.
Love has ripped my life apart and shattered my soul.
I love my husband, and he loves me.
But Nirvaan is dying.
I love my husband. I want to make him happy.
But he is asking for the impossible.
I donât want a baby.
I donât want to make nice with Zayaan.
I donât want another chance at another love story.
Conversation with Nirvaan Desai from My Last Love Story.
Introduce yourself to our readers.
Yo! My name is Nirvaan Desai and I have cancer. See? Says here on my t-shirt too.
God. Thatâs tough. Iâm sorry.
Nirvaan: Iâll take all the sympathy youâve got. Thanks. But letâs be clear, I hate wasting time on formalities. I want what I want and I want it now. So, letâs get on with this!
Right. As I told your wife, Iâll ask five random questions and you answer them as truthfully as you can.
Your wife mentioned a bucket list. Whatâs on yours?
Nirvaan: Going straight for the jugular. I like it! Simi has actually dubbed my bucket list the Titanic Wish List. Iâve checked most of the items off the list. I only have a few left, out of which #1 is getting Simi pregnant and #2 is making Zai acknowledge that heâs making a mistake with Marjanehâhis girlfriend.
Ok. Good luck with that. Would you stop eating junk food to live five years longer? Sorry, but this question card just popped right out of the pack.
Nirvaan: Told you, man. Donât be sorry for me. And no, I wonât stop eating junk food as I know it wonât make a difference. Not that Simi or my mother allow me to eat junk. Iâm on a very strict organic health food diet.
What three adjectives would your family use to describe you?
Nirvaan: Stubborn. Smexy. Stupendous.
Whatâs the best TV show ever?
Nirvaan: Does cable TV count? Then Game of Thrones. Itâs awesome, man. And I knew they wouldnât kill Jon Snow. Knew it!
Last question, andâ¦shit, one of those ones again. Should I pull another question?
Nirvaan: Stop that. I told you, its all cool. Just ask it.
Whatâs the secret to staying young?
Nirvaan: Dying young. *drumroll*
Love your spirit. I wish you the best for the rest of your life. And that completes our little game.
At once heartbreaking, delightful and completely unexpected. A must read!
