Rasana Atreya

Author Rasana Atreyaabout this book: Indian television is overrun with commercials from the manufacturers of skin lightening creams, called fairness creams in India, that promise everything from good grades to nirvana, if only you use their particular brand of product. So I came up with a tongue-in-cheek tagline for the novel, then proceeded to write the book -- Fairness Cream: Finding Solutions to Life's Vexing Problems, One Application at a Time

My book is about a lot of things though - corruption, superstition, politics and so on. I love read books with unexpected humor (not necessarily books marketed as 'humor'), so that's what I've tried to do here. My primary readers are people who'd like to read fast paced fiction about India. My book has a crackpot oracle, a naive teen goddess, the teen's love interest, her evil twin and a truly wicked villain in the form of a power hungry politician. The title of my book, Tell A Thousand Lies, comes from a traditional saying from our corner of India: Help arrange a marriage, even if you have to tell a thousand lies to do so. That's how important marriage has traditionally been viewed.
