Book Description
In Kardamom Kisses, members of a dysfunctional family flail along life’s funny path, hoping for salvation, or at least a piece of some action. The North and South of India clash in a celebration of contrasts as secrets come tumbling out, familial ties are refurbished and love is not quite what is seems. There’s Punjab and there’s Kerala, brought startlingly alive, and when Kedar weds Mangala, little does he bargain for whole cities and families to disdain each other. Pressured and soon celibate by compulsion, Kedar turns to other pursuits, notably a second wife, while Mangala copes with the results of hasty breeding. The children born to them travel into a future that alarmingly begins to resemble their roots and realize that in life, magic is at a premium. Sparkling wit savages societal snapshots as Shinie antonym takes the nice and the nasty to transform her debut novel into a merry carousel of touching moments. Here is a novel that clicks its tongue, asking the Great Indian Family to get moving.
