Reviews

'A timely memoir of her Anglo-Indian childhood which deepens the understanding of her novels ... a unique record of dual heritage.' -- The Times 'Her story provides a fascinating - and not always comfortable - insight into the life of a family straddling two powerfully contrasting cultures.' -- The Guardian 20021112 '...offers an enlightening, mixed-race slant on Indian independence as well as an account of a pre-TV, all-skipping 1940s childhood. The contrast between grey, cabbage-scented England and the vibrant sensuality of India is revealing as well.' -- The Independent 20021019 'evocative and absorbing' -- Writing Magazine, February-March 2003 20021019 'a very moving and personal reminiscence...Filled with the author's own delightful and poignant photos, this Anglo-Indian story will touch anyone's heart while also teaching readers about Indian traditions and culture.' -- 4:teens, April 2003 20021019 'a hilarious and informative account...It is something many mixed race children will be able to identify with.' -- The Voice 20030818
