Product description

Review

'Witty, smart, compelling' -- Kamila Shamsie

'A fine and funny novel . . . Rao has a great eye for absurd detail and a sensitive ear for what's not said. Polite Society is anything but polite' -- Mohammed Hanif

'Imagine Pride and Prejudice and Zombies, only funnier (and more terrifying thanks to all the Delhi socialites)' -- Fatima Bhutto

'Here is an utterly gripping, beautifully narrated and refreshingly inventive tale about India. Polite Society is not just a luminous work of art, it's a masterwork that tells you why Rao is such an important raconteur of our time' -- Anees Salim

'An unputdownable jewel of a novel by a writer of astonishing talent' -- Sonia Faleiro

'Rao's writing sneaks up on you. It's quiet, funny, warm. This book is about societal mores and power but it is also about angst and the unsaid' -- Deepak Unnikrishnan

About the Author

Mahesh Rao is the author of the Smoke Is Rising, which won the Tata First Book Award for fiction and was shortlisted for the Shakti Bhatt First Book Prize and the Crossword Award and One Point Two Billion.
