Judy Balan’s going to be in town for the launch of her debut novel – Two Fates: The Story of My Divorce; and she’s more than glad to meet our book club members before the event over a cup of coffee, have an informal chat about her book and everything else under the sun and sign a few copies for us.
When we gave the book to Richa, our books writer, we were a bit skeptical on how she’d find – after all, would someone who mostly enjoys literary piece of work like a light hearted chic-lit? Half-way through the book, she messaged us asking if we’d judge her on knowing that she’s enjoying the book. Here’s her review.
If you’d like to join us, play host to the lovely Judy and make her feel welcome to the city (since she usually stays aloof from meeting new people), just hit the ‘attending’ button on the Facebook event page so that we know what’s the head count.
And, coffee is on us. Cheers!
About the Book
It’s the classic tale of Punjabi boy-meets-Tamilian girl, they fall in love, the families oppose it, but love conquers all and they get married to live happily ever after. Or do they? There’s a twist in this hilarious tale by Judy Balan when, four years down the line, Rishab and Deepika fall out of love. But if getting married was hard, getting divorced is much, much harder – because by now their families have fallen in love – with each other. And will leave no stone unturned to make sure that what the Fates have joined together, no couple shall put asunder, even if it means staying together themselves as one big, inter-community family. Judy Balan lives in Chennai. This is her first novel.
