Ugly Cookies based on 0 ratings. 2 reviews.
I read this novel in one sitting, something I had not planned to do. But I was swept into the lives of the characters, their hopes and dreams. Plus, I laughed out loud at some of the scenes. These characters are poignant and funny and no matter what kind of trouble they find themselves in, they never lose heart.
Ugly Cookies is a hilarious romp through a maze of interconnecting relationships in which lifestyles, belief systems, generational expectations and commitments of career and love are challenged on many levels. The bizarre circumstances in which this is played out in ashrams, boardrooms, warehouses, marketplaces and coffehouses is humorous, yet the novel has a serious undetone throughout. The power of family influence to nurture or destroy all human relationships is dramatized through three generations.
