Dancing with the Two-Headed Tigress

Dancing with the Two-Headed Tigress

(2006)
A novel by

 

Thin, glossy and traffic-stoppingly gorgeous, Darshini Majumdar is the image of teenage perfection, and cut from the same cloth as Tuhina, her indulgent mother, a whirlwind of power and polish. The two combine to form "The Two-Headed Tigress" - a beast so fearsome it makes Prakash (meek father and husband, a doctor with too much heart) cower in submission. But when Mousumi, a naive and overweight cousin, is sent from India to live with this dysfunctional London family, her arrival sends the household into chaos. Desperately struggling to understand English - and Englishness - Mousumi is ignored by Darshini and Tuhina but finds an ally in Prakash. Together, Mousumi and Prakash indulge their love of old-world India, blissfully turning their backs on Darshini and Tuhina's cosmopolitan ideals.



Witty, sly and emotionally resonant, Dancing with the Two-Headed Tigress is an exuberant fish-out-of-water comedy of cultural misunderstanding.
