Meena Kandasamy reviewed my Roadrunner for the Indian Express several days ago (I think April 19). She liked the book overall -- she calls it "one of the most authentic accounts of America and India - an engaging narrative that combines penetrating insight and a pedestrian's point of view." On the other hand, she really objects to my "conversational and chatty teenager tone".
Take a look (sorry, I couldn't find it elsewhere online). Any thoughts welcome.

Well if it is irksome and makes people think it is a badge of honour, no? She sounds, like, mean, but in reality she is, like, even Meena. A, like, a Kandasamy-automatic pistol. Okay -- gotta finish my homework.
I'm like, OMG, pvs comment was supposed to be teenage-speak, rite? I see, I get the pick-cha!
Rofl, omg! Like its only teens that flock to this forum! Dilip is an awesome writer - like, us kids can really understand him. Nope, no hand-guns no dope, ddd gives us hope. Meena still has a lot to learn, lol!
Way cool. Anonymous guys trying to immitate teen speech ... FAIL! Way cool... NOT!!!
But good review, Dilip... Think she felt she had to find something critical... the rest is so positive...
