Then a wedding alliance arrives for her oldest sister-a fair-skinned beauty. There's great rejoicing in their household. And why not? The prospective father-in-law is the right-hand man of an important politician. As Pullamma helps ready the house for the bride-viewing-by washing the cow, by stringing flowers along doorways-she prays for the alliance to go through. Then something happens.
Something so inconceivable, it will shape Pullamma's future in ways even the local soothsayer couldn't have foretold.
Tell A Thousand Lies is a sometimes sassy, sometimes sad but, ultimately, realistic look at how superstition, and the colour of a girl's skin, rules India's hinterlands.
