Shilpi Somaya Gowda
Often what separates the bestsellers from the also-rans is readability. Practically every reviewer of Shilpi Somaya Gowda’s debut novel, Secret Daughter, has said, in so many words: “You will want to read this book.” So far, over one million people have done so. It has been translated into 22 languages and has been optioned for film. The book, inspired by the author’s experience working in an orphanage in India, is a finely crafted, compelling story built around thoroughly engaging characters.
Her new novel, The Golden Son, like its predecessor, is a complex bi-cultural story peopled with meticulously developed characters. Readers will find themselves irresistibly immersed in their lives and their cultural conflictedness.
