Praise

"By the end of this very first story, people half a world away have been transformed into complete human beings, full of frailties and fragile self-regard, achingly sympathetic. That’s why THE RED CARPET reads like a revelation…. I recommend this book so highly!"–Carolyn See, The Washington Post

"Throughout these fine, articulate stories, Lavanya Sankaran brings to life the new and old social worlds of Bangalore. More importantly, she uses the quiet dignity of her characters to reveal what’s universal in the wide rift between generations. It’s an unusually elegant and nuanced portrait."
–John Dalton author of Heaven Lake

"[An] animated debut collection…. [These stories] are memorable for their subtle wit and convincing evocation of a dynamic world."–Publishers Weekly
