Description of Korma, Kheer & Kismet : Five Seasons in Old Delhi (English) 1st Edition (Hardcover) by Pamela Timms

Pamela Timms finds her inspiration when the disorderly, not-so-grand and yet honest gullies of the old city, Delhi, offer her a sweet escape into the world of aroma and vibrant flavours. Numerous explorations change her perceptions about cooking and food forever, and she embarks on a journey to explore the stories and the undisclosed ingredients of the much-loved street food of Old Delhi. She discloses the anonymities surrounding several recipes. This journey takes Pamela straight to the heart of the city, where she is not only opened up to new ways of cooking and creating brilliant taste, but is also welcomed into the lives of people who are in this noble business. She rejoices festivals with them, gets acquainted with their families, finds recipes for some of the best Khorma, Kheer and beyond, and makes treasured friends, soon to gather that Old Delhi has become no less than a home.

About Pamela Timms

Pamela Timms is a well-known Scottish journalist. She left the cold, damp homeland with her family to begin a journey of a lifetime towards Delhi. But within a short period of time, she was frustrated, realizing that she was still far from the real India she was set out to discover. It took a while for the journalist to realize that Old Delhi was perhaps her home away from home, on which she has written about in Khorma Kheer & Kismet. Pamela has also penned works for a wide range of publications. She archives her Indian food explorations on her blog. A prolific writer, she is also a columnist for Mint.

Description of Love Among the Bookshelves (English) (Hardcover) by Ruskin Bond

Ruskin Bond's stories have amazed and inspired. But what are the stories which amazed and inspired him? In this anthology, he presents the stories he grew up on, and the inspiration that he drew from them. In stories by authors such as P. G. Wodehouse, whose Love Among The Chickens is the inspiration for this book's title, H. E. Bates, W. Somerset Maugham, Charles Dickens and Richard Jeffries, learn how young Ruskin Bond became the writer we all know and love. Including immortal stories such as selections from the Pickwick Papers, From Cakes And Ale, Schooldays, Rule Days, and From The Story of My Heart, this collection takes readers back to a time where stories where the sole escape a little boy could afford. In doing so perhaps, we can understand where the muse hides, and where to find her. Ruskin Bond speaks out in this part-memoir, part anthology, and tells readers that his tryst with reading didn't begin in a library or a bookshop or even an old aunt's collection of romance novels. He tells them that it began with a week he spent at a forest rest house in the Rajaji sanctuary, and there he discovered something which set the course for the rest of his life: a wall cupboard with a couple of shelves full of books. In these anecdotes, he draws readers into his past and reveals a process hidden in plain sight, yet one every non-writer wishes to understand. How does a person become a writer? The answer Bond gives is simple. By reading, of course.

About Ruskin Bond

Ruskin Bond is a British-Indian writer. He is known best for his children's stories. Some of his works are: The Room on the Roof, A Flight of Pigeons, The Sensualist, The Blue Umbrella, Angry River, The Parrot Who Wouldn't Talk and The Blue Umbrella.

He was awarded the Padma Bhushan for his contributions towards Indian literature and the Sahitya Akademi Award in 1992 for Our Trees Still Grow in Dehra. He now lives in in Landour, near Mussoorie with his adopted family.

Description of We Are All Completely Beside Ourselves (English) (Paperback) by Karen Joy Fowler

Rosemary's young, just at college and she's decided not to tell anyone a thing about her family.

So we're not going to tell you too much either: you'll have to find out for yourselves, round about page 77, what it is that makes her unhappy family unlike any other.

Rosemary is now an only child, but she used to have a sister the same age as her, and an older brother.

Both are now gone - vanished from her life.

There's something unique about Rosemary's sister, Fern.

And it was this decision, made by her parents, to give Rosemary a sister like no other, that began all of Rosemary's trouble.

So now she's telling her story: full of hilarious asides and brilliantly spiky lines, it's a looping narrative that begins towards the end, and then goes back to the beginning. Twice.

It's funny, clever, intimate, honest, analytical and swirling with ideas that will come back to bite you.

We hope you enjoy it, and if, when you're telling a friend about it, you do decide to spill the beans about Fern - it's pretty hard to resist - don't worry.

One of the few studies Rosemary doesn't quote says that spoilers actually enhance reading.

As Paul tries to work out the meaning of life, a Facebook page and Twitter account appear in his name. What's at first an outrageous violation of privacy soon becomes something more frightening: the possibility that the online "Paul" might be a better version of the man in the flesh. Who is doing this and will it cost Paul his sanity?
