About the Book:
Moving seamlessly between the present and the past, I… He… &… She traces the relationship between a man and a woman. The screenwriters play with notions of time, memory as well as identity (the male protagonist refers to his past self as “He” and his present self as “I”), giving the narrative a fragmented texture that only adds to its appeal. At the same time, in spite of the shifts in time and self, and in spite of the presence of assorted characters, the screenwriters create a deeply intimate world, at the centre of which are I/He and She, holding this world together.
