GOLD MEDAL 2015 IPPY AWARD FOR MULTICULTURAL FICTION
Praise for “My Blue Skin Lover”
“This small, lovely book . . . is unpredictable to the very end, centered around a topic rarely seen in contemporary literature—the disruption that a true spiritual awakening can cause in an everyday life. Monona Wali’s depiction of American East Indians is a special pleasure, and this fine debut novel’s treatment of the stresses of academic life and upwardly mobile marriage is spot on.” – Janet Fitch, bestselling author of White Oleander and Paint It Black.
“If you have ever wondered (and who hasn’t?) what happens when the calm front of the everyday plus financial well-being meets the whirlwind of the spiritual and sexual, My Blue Skin Lover should answer many of your questions. Enter Shiva, and what follows is a dizzying swirl of East intersecting with West. With this novel, Monona Wali has written a dangerous and wise book that I love.” - Jim Krusoe, author of Parsifal
