‘A moving, powerful tribute to life itself …. A seriously funny book where even the saddest of events, including sickness and death, is dealt with a light touch.’ The Hindu ‘If you haven’t read The Monsters Still Lurk, then you should, immediately. It’s brilliant. It’s the Kabhi Khushi Kabhi Gham that we deserve.’ Anuja Chauhan 'Aruna Nambiar infuses her stories with such warmth and humour that, as you read, you feel it is all happening to you.' Shinie Antony 'Brilliant, brilliant book. A fun, superbly written read that never fails to pick me up. Plus full-on Bombay-of-my-bachpan nostalgia.' Kiran Manral ‘A wonderful tale… a potential sleeper hit.’ New Asian W ‘The heartache of growing up and growing old is captured beautifully. The book has plenty of Aruna's trademark humour, and has to be read slowly, so one can savour it and enjoy all the different emotions it brings to the surface.’ Andaleeb Wajid It is 1991. As Rajiv Gandhi is assassinated and a new government comes to power, setting in motion a process of economic reforms that will transform India, an ordinary family is about to experience detours from the traditional middle-class script of their lives. Over the next quarter century, as the world around them changes in ways unexpected, their lives too wind along uncharted trails, sometimes sunlit, sometimes shadowy and forbidding. Funny, perceptive and moving, The Monsters Still Lurk is a bittersweet saga of love, loss, ageing and shifting family dynamics, and a keenly observed portrait of post-liberalisation India that captures the zeitgeist of a rapidly evolving society.
