Summary
His father is positive: it's a girl. The birth announcement cards for Eva van der Kwast are at the printer. So when Ernest is born in Mumbai, India, in 1981, the consternation is immense. From that moment on, Ernest will have a fraught relationship with his parents. Ernest van der Kwast's breakout autobiographical novel-in-stories introduces us to the array of colourful and exuberant relatives that made up his childhood, from Bollywood star Uncle Sharma to talented heptathlete Aunt Jasleen. But it's van der Kwast's overbearing yet loving mother who's the beating heart of these stories - a woman with an iron will, hilarious directness, and, above all, an intense passion to protect her family. Intriguing, surprising, and tender, Mama Tandoori will make you smile from beginning to end
