The Vague Woman's Handbook by Devapriya Roy, book reviewIndia has already shown that it can master the chick lit. Now it’s the turn of the Sophie Kinsella type of novel, the girl after marriage dealing with accounts. In fact Sophie Kinsella’s heroine pops up fairly often in this peppy debut novel, as does Alexander McCall Smith’s middle aged sleuth Isabel Dalhousie, so it’s good if you’ve flipped through books by both authors.

It’s a book about the friendship between a young newly married girl, Mila Chatterjee and an older woman. Mila’s just got married and has moved to Delhi with her husband Abhimanyu who is studying something strange after giving up a full scholarship to a prestigious American university.

And I might agree – but only because mine is the hard-back and probably weighs more than two pairs of shoes. However, it could be the ideal book to hook you in and make you incapable of doing anything other than rushing home, microwaving the cat, stroking the ready meal and neglecting your ironing until you’ve finished it. Marian Keyes’ novel ‘This Charming Man‘ is chick-lit for the thinking woman – superficially fluffy but with plenty of depth and exploration of the motivations and causes of social breakdown.
