I so loved this novel - laugh-out-loud funny and yet deeply touching. Like a blingy version of A Diary of a Nobody it demonstrates that whatever our nationality or wealth we're all prey to fathomless insecurity (Deborah Moggach, author of The Best Exotic Marigold Hotel)
The funniest novel to come out of India in years, Diksha Basu's Delhi Riche is a timely snapshot of Delhi families on the way up, down and sideways. (Gary Shteyngart, author of Super Sad True Love Story)
Wry and witty with understated pearls of joy in one deliciously observed tale (Helen Lederer)
A complete joy from start to finish (Kamila Shamsie)
A comedy of manners for the globalized 21st century, Delhi Riche is equal parts heart and laugh by a writer who is a new star. (David Ebershoff, author of The Danish Girl)
Hilarious comedy of manners (Vogue)
Uproarious, beady-eyed social comedy with a big heart (Mail on Sunday, Summer Reading 'If You Only Pack One')
From actress Diksha Basu comes a sparkling comedy of manners about social climbing, social rivalry and social anxiety in the New IndiaSee all Product description

This book was a good read which looks into the effects that having such a huge financial lifestyle change can have on all members of the family, and affect how they see themselves and the people around them. It wasn't as funny as I was expecting, but that may be just my sense of humour. I also found it rather sad in places. I was however very disappointed with the ending as I felt as it had been rushed, and that the characters seemed to do a 180 degree turn around in such a small amount of time, which I felt didn't fit with how the rest of the story had gone.
Overall I did enjoy this book, and it made a nice change from reading the typical England or America situated books and to travel further afield. Although I did feel the author was being a little bit stereotypical at times. Definitely a book I may pick up again in the future.

The Jha family interacts with old neighbors and new neighbors. Diksha Basu's writing is lovely and she seems to quite honestly care about her characters. I'm not sure if the Jhas' - particularly Anil's - preoccupation with status and money and what money can buy was exaggerated for fiction, but I'll bet a lot of it is real.
Diksha Basu's novel may seem superficial on reading, but it really isn't. Love abounds in all the relationships and the happiness that results is a joy to read. It reminded me of another book I loved, "The Sleepwalker's Guide to Dancing". by Mira Jacob. If you like this book, you should check out the Jacob book.
