Mom & Me & Mom by Maya Angelou: My first of the author (a tad little!) and I can't get over the simplicity and brazen attitude/writing.
In Other Words by Jhumpa Lahiri: I have always been fascinated by languages and reading about Lahiri's longing, love, passion and learning of Italian was a fascinating experience.
Half a Rupee Stories by Gulzar: The foreword sums up why everyone needs to read this simple, humble read -- Of course, there are various subjects on which I have written. But then life is not lived in monotone.
Sisters by Elizabeth Fishel: A 1979, first edition, that I picked at a second-hand book market in India. If you have a sister, you have to own this book.
The Company of Women by Khushwant Singh: Because you can never get enough of this bold, honest, and fearless author!
Thank you Purva Grover for this reading list! May you get time to read a thousand books in the coming year!
