In this modern reimagining of Jane Austen’s Emma, Delhi’s polite society is often anything but polite.
“So funny, smart, sophisticated, and captivating, you just want to spend your whole life with it.”–Kevin Kwan, author of Crazy Rich Asians
Beautiful, clever, and more than a little bored, Ania Khurana has Delhi wrapped around her finger. Having successfully found love for her spinster aunt, she sets her sights on Dimple: her newest, sweetest, and most helpless friend. But when her aunt’s handsome nephew arrives from America, the social tides in Delhi begin to shift. Surrounded by old money and new, relentless currents of gossip, and an unforgettable cast of socialites, journalists, gurus, and heirs, Ania discovers that her good intentions are no match for the whims and intrigues of Delhi’s high society.
Pairing stiletto-sharp observation and social comedy with moments of true tenderness, this delicious whirl through the mansions of India’s dazzling elite celebrates that there’s no one route to perfect happiness.
