Description


An extraordinarily moving memoir from an iconoclastic new talent--an artist, cook, and illustrator whose adventures at home and abroad reveal the importance of living life with your eyes wide open.
Best known for her witty illustrations, and as a cook beside her mischievous father in her family's legendary Manhattan restaurant, in "Mumbai New York Scranton, "Tamara Shopsin offers a brilliantly inventive, spare, and elegant chronicle of a year in her life characterized by impermanence. In a refreshingly original voice alternating between tender and brazen, Shopsin recounts a trip to the Far East with her sidekick husband and the harrowing adventure that unfolds when she comes home. Entire worlds, deep relationships, and indelible experiences are portrayed in Shopsin's deceptively simple and sparse language and drawings.
Blending humor, love, suspense--and featuring photographs by Jason Fulford--"Mumbai New York Scranton "inspires a kaleidoscope of emotions. Shopsin's surprising and affecting tale will keep you on the edge of your seat.
