One & a Half Wife (English) (Paperback) Price: Rs.144

Unlike most Indian immigrants, Amara Malhotra is not destined to achieve the American Dream. Much to the anxiety of her parents - the spirited Biji and the doting Baba - Amara leads an unremarkable life. That is, until she marries Harvard-educated millionaire, Prashant Roy.

However, this fairy-tale isn’t meant to last, and even as Amara’s marriage collapses, she finds herself returning to the land of her birth, to the small city of Shimla. Here, in a borough grappling with questions of modernity, Amara is caught in a tug-of-war between old beliefs and new ones, between parents who favour obedience and new friends who encourage independent thought.

With powerful insights, One and a Half Wife traces the coming-of-age of multiple characters, while re-defining family, relationships and love in contemporary India.

Amara rocks

Amara Malhotra - the protagonist - rocks! She is more than a one-and-a-half wife. I would love to marry a girl like her.

I like Biji too. She reminds me of my mother.

Is there a sequel to this novel?

Dazzling

Every once in a while a book comes along that reminds you why you love to read. One & A Half Wife has got an absorbing story that pulls you right in, it's pacy such that you will not be able to put it down, and the characters stay with you long after you finish reading. It's insightful while also being funny, and very well-written. The theme is also timely, capturing the wave of the confident new India, the slow fall of the US, reverse immigration, divorce and modernism that is gripping our culture today. If you have to pick a book this year to read, read One & A Half Wife.

Amazing book!

I love this book. I read it after reading Meghna Pant's new book 'Happy Birthday' and must say that both are brilliant. The emotional connect you feel with each and every character is just outstanding.
