I started reading Calypso on the metro into DC, and I wondered if people could tell what I was reading because I felt all my emotions visible on my face! That is the effect of this book!
His latest book, Calypso, is a collection of 21 essays about his family, health, mortality and relationship with his father and partner that form the foundation of this book. His stories are eloquently written exhibiting wry, wit, and sarcasm.
My daughter and I recently had the opportunity to get our hands on a fantastic book called ‘What Would She Do? Real-life Stories of 25 Rebel Women Who Changed The World’. A beautifully illustrated and thoughtfully written book about strong resilient women – what’s not to love?!
I started reading ‘Small Great Things’ by Jodi Picoult over New Years’ eve! Yes, the introvert in me admits that I wasn’t out partying that night! I started this book outside on our patio that evening while we had a family BBQ going on, and I could not put this book down! #pageturner
Read the synopsis below and my thoughts, to see if this is a book that would pique your interest as well.
I recently read and reviewed When Dimple Met Rishi, by Sandhya Menon. As I came to the the end of the book- the flap where you often have the author’s bio, this is what it read.
Sandhya Menon was born and raised in India on a steady diet of Bollywood movies and street food. She balances this upbringing for her obsession with happily ever afters, bad dance moves, and pani puri. Now Sandhya lives in Colorado where she’s on a mission to (gently) coerce her husband and children to watch all 3,220 Bollywood movies she claims as her favorite. Visit her online at sandhyamenon.com
In my somewhat disillusioned state, I was tempted to reach out to her and see if she would be willing to share more about herself for my readers on the blog.
