From A.R. Quar comes “… And Then She Opened a Can of Worms,” a humorously fertile novel cunningly grounded in reality with an ending that will keep readers guessing what decision the main protagonist will finally make. This book centers on the life of a smart television writer whose show has her own family fuming as the less-than-likeable characters are based on none other than them. On her visit home, the simmering emotions are set to boil over.
London-based writer Mandy Dhillon finally achieves her aim of having a hit television show. But when her family in India figures out that the shallow and superficial characters in the show — the self-absorbed socialite, the gay cafe owner, and the journalist — have been based on them, she has no choice but to face the firing squad that is her family back in India. The time for long overdue confrontation is near as reasons for her actions open up old wounds which she, if given the chance and choice, would rather forget about.
In this book, Mandy is joined by her brother Bikram, who is living in the closet with a hot Norwegian diplomat and has to fend off the advances of a persistent socialite; her beautiful socialite of a cousin Dinky, who is sick of Mandy judging her lifestyle choice; and Kiri, her sharp-tongued aunt who loves her daily fix of Magellan Gin.
“… And Then She Opened a Can of Worms” delivers big laughs with drama and romance impeccably blended in. Quar’s riveting work of fiction peopled by characters that many can identify with is a must-read book that smoothly unravels to a tale of life, love and the pursuit of happiness.
