Categorized as Mawkish.

Political memoirs seem to be the flavour of the literary world this time of the year. You had a former media adviser to the former PM writing his memoirs and now one has Natwar Singh - a former bureaucrat and cabinet minister, penning his version of how events unfolded when he was 'active' in politics. 
The reviews haven't been kind. And both these books, like most in this category in the past, have been categorized as mawkish. 
That's our word this week - mawkish. It reflects having a mildly nauseating flavour  often characterized by sickly sentimentality.
