The Daughters of Madurai (2023)
Rajasree Variyar
"A haunting, powerful novel [about] a trauma that endures and spawns secrets that spread through the generations. . . . The Daughters of Madurai is also about the cleansing effects of modernity and love and hope."
thumb
Unmarriageable (2019)
Soniah Kamal
"Irreverent, witty, and imaginative . . . Austen herself would have enjoyed Kamal's deft retelling of her novel, while sipping a cup of chai."
thumb
The Collector's Apprentice (2018)
B A Shapiro
"I was engrossed in every twist and turn in this compulsively captivating page-turner, all the way until its astonishing denouement. Shapiro has done it again!"
