Praise for Tova Reich . . .
"Reich’s comic vision gives the last word to life . . . a rapturous celebration."—The New York Times Book Review

"Undeniably funny . . . Reich has the writer’s sure touch, eye, ear, sensibility."—The Washington Post

"Relentlessly daring and stylistically hypnotic, Mother India from its earliest passages releases imaginative floods of extravagant pageantry—the turbulent sounds and smells and colors of the Varanasi ghats seem to float up from the page to dizzy the senses. And yet bloody contemporary headlines are also in the mix: the jihadist bombing of Mumbai. In this, her newest novel—passionate and hilarious and wildly original—Tova Reich dazzlingly surpasses even herself."—Cynthia Ozick, award-winning author of Foreign Bodies

"Few contemporary writers are truly original. Tova Reich is one of them. Mother India is a stunning achievement."—Howard Norman, author of My Darling Detective
