Product Description

Namita Gokhale is a writer, publisher and co-director of the Jaipur
Literature Festival. Her books include the novels Paro: Dreams of
Passion, A Himalayan Love Story, Gods, Graves and Grandmother, The
Book of Shadows and Shakuntala: The Play of Memory; a short story
collection The Habit of Love; and the non-fiction works The Book of
Shiva and Mountain Echoes: Reminiscences of Kumaoni Women. She has
also retold the Mahabharata for young readers and co-edited In Search of Sita: Revisiting Mythology.

India is shining, and Suresh Kaushal, the stout lawyer -of sober habits', has propelled himself up the political ladder to become Minister of State for Food Processing, Animal Husbandry, Fisheries and Canneries. His wife Priya can't believe their luck and, determined to ensure it doesn't run out, struggles valiantly with -social vertigo', infidelity and menopause. Along the way she also learns vital lessons on survival, as she watches her glamorous new friend Pooonam chase status, sex and Jimmy Choo shoes, and her radical old friend Lenin ride a donkey and lose his bearings. In this wickedly funny, occasionally tender, book, Namita Gokhale resurrects some unforgettable characters from her 1984 cult bestseller Paro, and plunges them neck-deep into Delhi's toxic waste of power, money and greed.
