‘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 is the beautiful, clever and very slightly bored scion of a rich Indian family whose machinations soon lead her down the primrose path of match-making – first for her aunt (‘There was one in most of the grand houses in Delhi, usually beached somewhere on the upper floors.’) and then for her friend Dimple.

Set against the background of ‘polite’ Delhi society, it is rich with stiletto-sharp observation, is a delightful social comedy, and yet is poignant, too.

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