"Almost before I knew it, it was November, and Diwali was here. Meena Auntie’s annual Diwali potluck would be on Saturday, so on Friday Daddy did a trial run of his contribution—potato latkes with tamarind chutney and yogurt sauce. Mum and I pronounced it a huge success, much better than the chana-jor-garam-crusted chicken wings he attempted last Diwali, which in theory should have been delicious but actually were just soggy and awkward to eat."
Diwali Tov, everyone!

I mentioned to a young reader at THE INSIDE STORY event at Bank Street Books today, that actually My Basmati Bat Mitvzah is the second book I wrote, but the only one to be published. “Maybe you can take the good parts of the other one and put them inside a real book,” she suggested. I think I will try that.
