16-year-old PULLAMMA is too dark-skinned to have dreams. For this reason, she's obliged her old-fashioned grandmother by not doing well in school. She's also resigned to remaining unwed; with three girls in the family, there's simply not enough dowry to go around.

Produktbeschreibung
16-year-old PULLAMMA is too dark-skinned to have dreams. For this reason, she's obliged her old-fashioned grandmother by not doing well in school. She's also resigned to remaining unwed; with three girls in the family, there's simply not enough dowry to go around.

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.

◆ Tell A Thousand Lies is one of our five favourite tales from India. Glam Magazine, UK (June 2014)

Autorenporträt
Rasana Atreya's debut novel, Tell A Thousand Lies, was shortlisted for the Tibor Jones South Asia Prize. This novel was taught at the University of New Mexico, Albuquerque's English 479. Glam magazine (UK) calls this "one of our five favourite tales from India."

The University of New Mexico, Albuquerque's publication Emerging South Asian Women Writers: Essays and Interviews (From Antiquity to Modernity Book 1) by Feroza Jussawalla and Deborah Fillerup Weagel has a writeup on Rasana.

After working in IT for several years, Rasana made a successful transition to writing fiction. Rasana was one of India's self-publishing pioneers. She did this after declining a trade-publishing contract. Amazon flew her to New Delhi for the launch of the Kindle.

Rasana lives in the San Francisco Bay Area with her husband and two children. Her son is in college, and daughter is grumpily finishing high school over Zoom.

Her novels, all standalones, are loosely tied together in a series, Tales From The Deccan Plateau:

* Tell A Thousand Lies (March 2012)

* Talking Is Wasted Breath (Previously 28 Years A Bachelor. December 2020)

* Daughters Inherit Silence (February 2021)

* The Water Wives (Launching in 2022)

* The Temple Is Not My Father (Expanding novella into a novel. Launching in 2022)

* Tell A Lie, Beget A Daughter (Launching in 2022)
