..a hilarious satire.' -The Tribune'

..a terrific take-off on the Indian state and how it's misrun. Wit, satire, lampoonery, piquancy and plain ridicule pervade the pages of this novel..' -Business Standard

'Raunchy and tough, smooth and almost facile, Mammaries shares with all good satire its power simultaneously shock and amuse'. -The Hindu
