Praise for Tell A Thousand Lies

Like most westerners, my knowledge of India is close to non-existent – limited to having read Slumdog Millionaire and White Tiger. Tell a Thousand Lies is an eye opener. Rasana paints a vivid picture of aspects of village life that no tourist will ever become acquainted with. She is a gifted story-teller who brings her characters to life and takes us into a world we would not otherwise have the chance to visit. I highly recommend this book.
– Yael Politis, author The Lonely Tree

Tell A Thousand Lies is an emotional rollercoaster ride that makes you keep rooting for Pullamma as Atreya delightfully and hilariously infuses issues of class, religion, work, education, sexual roles, and the ties between women.
– Holly J Michael, book blogger (

Tell a Thousand Lies is a fast-paced story about a girl whose life is propelled by circumstances beyond her control from that of an innocent, naive teenager to that of a living goddess. Along the way, she sheds some of her naivete, but manages to retain her matter-of-fact manner of dealing with her circumstances, as well as her sense of humour.
– Vrinda Baliga, contributor to anthology Two Is Company and Other Stories

    I’ve never noticed this before. Is it new? Really nicely done.
