Praise for The Grammarian

[A] stunning debut novel... Potluri's description of the sounds and grammar of Telugu, as well as her sensual description of domestic elements, suffuse the text with richness, while her gorgeous portrayal of south Indian culture remains firmly grounded: the ideal and beautiful sharing close quarters with the grotesque and problematic.--Publishers Weekly (starred review)

Potluri's love of language is evident as rich descriptions overflow onto well-written pages. Literary fiction lovers will revel in the descriptive scenes that contain underlying messages of love and loyalty. --Library Journal

Potluri writes with uncommon elegance, her keen empathy and flair for metaphor in artful marriage with her own background in linguistics... A richly drawn portrait of the chaos and the color of imperial India--a debut novel that spans more than half a century, three continents and the unreachable distance between two people. --Shelf Awareness
