Thanks for the tag @Kelly_the_Bookish_Sidekick

1. The tagged book is a Persephone book set in India - I loved it!
2. Yes, one of my other favourites was The God of Small Things.
3. Yes, a lot. We live near Bradford, UK, with its large Indian community, so lots of nice Indian restaurants round here....we also cook curry at home. I prefer ‘flavoursome‘ rather than ‘blow your head off‘ spicy! 🥵

Anyone else want to play along?

TheEllieMo Blow-your-head-off spicy is an English invention! Flavoursome is much better 😁 4y
Kelly_the_Bookish_Sidekick Both books sound good. I am also a fan of the more flavorsome foods. Thanks for playing! 4y
Blackink_WhitePaper Blow your head off spicy 🌶 😝😝 nice one ...😛 thanks for playing 4y

Besides having far in the title this book is definitely all about #howfarillgo.

It‘s the story of Teresa, a young girl who is ‘dragged off‘ to India by her father, to avoid her mother who has recently returned to Teresa‘s life after abandoning her as a baby.

The descriptions of the boat trip there, the people Teresa meets and, of course,India itself are just fabulous.....

Loving the Persephone endpapers, as usual!


Cinfhen Jealous!! I think I‘m ready to own a Persephone book 5y
erzascarletbookgasm All these #Persephone and #NYRB editions are driving me crazy (in a good way) 😉 5y
RohitSawant How wonderful! 5y
gradcat I guess I‘m going to have to buy books (as opposed to e-books) so that I can have a nice row of #Persephone & #NYRB editions...really lovely endpapers! 😍 5y

Loved this book, I‘d call it a ‘classic‘ but with a slightly dark twist. It‘s a tale of difficult relationships through the eyes of a young teenager swept off to India suddenly by her father.

Thanks to @laurenbescoby for the Amazon Qb.99 tip off! Have either of you made a start on this yet @Oryx @MayJasper ? I think you‘ll enjoy it!

laurieluna That was quick! Glad you liked it, going to be at least another month until I get to it as I clear my currently reading pile 🙈 5y
squirrelbrain I just picked it randomly off the TBR shelf, and glad I did! @laurenbescoby 5y
Oryx Not started it yet, not sure when I'll get to it, but maybe will bring to Gladstone library in April if I don't get to before then. 5y
MayJasper No I haven't yet. To be honest my TBR pile (or rather piles) is getting out of control! 5y
squirrelbrain Me too @MayJasper ! 😜 5y
