I love intriguing covers and titles of books. They will draw me more than any summation on the back flaps will ever do. Serving Crazy with Curry by Amulya Malladi has both. I love food – no small secret since I am overweight. And I am likely slightly crazy. So this is a wonderful combination for me.
Successful Devi has lost her top notch job in Silicon Valley. Pressure from her mother to become a good Indian wife is not helping. So Devi decides to do the only thing that seems practical to her. Fill the bathtub with water and slit her wrists. Unfortunately, or fortunately, her meddling mother decides to pop in for a visit and discovers her naked daughter in a tub filled with blood soaked water.
Something strange has happened to Devi since her suicide attempt. She is cooking wacky Indian food… non traditional takes on traditional Indian food… and not one member of her family understands, but they certainly aren’t complaining. Except for her mother, who does not understand her daughter’s need to invade her sacred kitchen and neatly arranged spice jars. Any why has she not spoken since the night of her accident??
As Devi’s past slowly catches up with her, she discovers what hasn’t killed her, just might make her stronger.
