Dancing with the Two-Headed Tigress

by Tina Biswas - £7.99  Transworld Publishers Ltd (2007)
paperback    ISBN 13: 9780552773232 | ISBN 10: 0552773239

Fat, unsophisticated Mousumi is on her way to visit her cosmopolitan relations in London.
She is welcomed by the Majumdar family: Prakash, a doctor with too much heart, who is married to Tuhina, a steely investment banker. But it is Darshini, their glamorous daughter, who really fascinates her.
Darshini and Mousumi are total opposites, and Mousumi just canít beat Darshiniís Princess credentials. The two of them form a love-hate relationship, until one day Mousumiís feisty personality begins to assert itself.
Tina Biswasí first novel is an exuberant comedy of cultural misunderstanding and people who simply donít get on. Whose side will you be taking?

"Biswas mixes dashes of magical realism with insights into what family life can really be like, as the actions of grandparents echo down the generations."
(Marie Claire)
