Novel attempt

Tishani Doshi revisits her growing up years in a hybrid family in “The Pleasure Seekers”

This might have been the toughest book launch event Tishani Doshi has had to attend.

“It's very unnerving to be in a position where I know so many people in the audience,” she said with a laugh during the launch of her debut novel, The Pleasure Seekers at Taj Connemara. “I feel you already know so much about me — it's almost better to have anonymity to start with and have the audience get to know you!”

It was a little unnerving for a couple of other people in the audience as well — her parents, since the book for the most part is inspired by their Gujarati-Welsh marriage and the ‘hybrid' family that resulted.
