Indira GanesanAs Sweet as Honey

Indira Ganesan reads from and discusses her new novel As Sweet as Honey.”The imaginary Indian coastal island of Pi, where Ganesan has set her previous fiction, works beautifully as the setting for this East Asian homage to To the Lighthouse, both the nostalgic recreation of a lost perfect moment and an exploration into Woolf’s ‘thousand shapes of love.’ The novel is masterful at exploring the difficulty of cultural identity and integration. There’s also a bit of magical realism in the shape of a ghost. But ultimately, this is a novel about the many permutations of both love and family…. The characters’ genuine charm and the girlish, witty energy of the storytelling are irresistible.”-Kirkus (starred review)

($25.95) Knopf ISBN # 9780307960443. You can visit Indira Ganesan‘s official web site as well.
