Set in picturesque Kerala and with Kathakali as a background , Anita Nair's 'Mistress' is colourful, vibrant and appealing. The main protagonist is Radha,a beautiful woman in her early thirties who is married to a man she does not love. The novel begins with the arrival of Chris, a foreigner to a small town in Kerala. Chris has come to write a book on Radha's uncle (Koman) who is an acclaimed Kathakali artist. Koman's story is interwoven into this tale.
