Polite Society

Polite Society

‘Is it possible to marry a book? Because Polite Society is so funny, smart, sophisticated, and captivating, you just want to spend your whole life with it. It was love at first sight from the very first page’ Kevin Kwan, author of CRAZY RICH ASIANS

Ania Khurana is beautiful, clever and in need of entertainment. She’s wrapped Delhi society around her little finger, and now her creativity requires a new vista. Then she finds love for her spinster aunt, rescuing her from a life watching Masterchef.

Hugely satisfied with her first success as a matchmaker, Ania selects her friend Dimple for her next quest. But good intentions can go awry, and when a handsome suitor arrives from America, Ania discovers that when you aim to please the human heart, things seldom go to plan.


‘Witty, smart, compelling’ Kamila Shamsie, author of Home Fire

Reviews

A deep and utter treat: a sly, witty Delhi reinvention of Emma. Rao writes like Vikram Seth's naughty younger brother and I want to have cocktails and gossip with him at once
Patrick Gale
The only way to write an Austentatious novel
Financial Times
A bitingly funny version of Austen's Emma. . . . Could have been titled Crazy Rich Indians
South China Morning Post
Witty, smart, compelling
