Description
Now an editor at NPR's Morning Edition, for five years Miranda Kennedy lived in Delhi as a correspondent for NPR and Marketplace Radio. Here she writes of the Indian city she came to love, where she found an exciting, rapidly developing society and also an ancient one in which, in many ways, women's lives have scarcely changed for centuries. Kennedy experiences friendships, love affairs, and losses that open a window onto the opaque world of Indian politics and culture—and alter her own attitudes about everything from food and clothes to marriage and family. Along the way, she is drawn into the lives of several Indian women, including her charismatic friend Geeta—a self-described "modern girl" who attempts to squeeze herself into the traditional role of wife and mother; Radha, a proud Brahmin widow who denies herself simple pleasures in order to live by high-caste Hindu principles; and Parvati, who defiantly chain-smokes and drinks whiskey, yet feels compelled to keep her boyfriend a secret from her family.

"Miranda Kennedy's sense of humor and intimate voice bring the jangly world of New Delhi to life. If you liked Elizabeth Gilbert's Eat, Pray, Love, you have to have this book."—Susan Cheever
