“A light sleeper at best, Mumbai opened its eyes by 5 a.m to the trundling arrival of milk trucks on the streets.“
Milk Teeth by Amrita Mahale is the story of a Bombay that throbs beneath the layers of cynicism and weariness that meet you everyday.
It is a song of enduring love. A love that has weathered many hardships along the way. One that I will hold dear as a celebration of the city I hate to love.
Amrita writes her people in such delicious, microscopic detail that I cannot wait to see how her writing journey unfolds.
If you’re looking for some accomplished writing from India, rich luscious characters and a way to time-travel to Bombay, of the 90s, go pick up Milk Teeth.
No teething troubles for this debut novel.
Rating – 4/5
