Reviews

Praise for We That Are Young

"Revelatory. Urgent and irresistible... One of the most exquisite and original novels of the year."--The Sunday Times

"We That Are Young is like nothing else. Its daring is outrageous."--Literary Review

"Urgent and exhilarating... We That Are Young cuts rage with poetry--and produces a memorable national epic."--The TLS

"Brilliant... finely crafted... Taneja has given us that rarest of beasts: a page-turner that is also unabashedly political."--The Guardian

"A remarkable picture of contemporary India... Taneja's sensuous writing brings women's predicaments to life--[and issues] a chilling warning."--The Irish Times

"Misogyny, religious and caste prejudice, plus the madness of money all make for a magnificent, dark and satirical drama."--Marie Claire
