MEDIA REVIEWS
" An unusual, clever, and often exquisite first novel...The result is rather as if Isabel Allende met Laura Esquivel."
"--Los Angeles Times"
" Divakaruni's prose is so pungent that it stains the page, yet beneath the sighs and smells of this brand of magic realism she deftly introduces her true theme: how an ability to accommodate desire enlivens not only the individual heart but a society cornered by change."
"--The New Yorker"
" "The Mistress of Spices" is a dazzling tale of misbegotten dreams and desires, hopes and expectations, woven with poetry and storyteller magic."
--Amy Tan
" A splendid novel, beautifully conceived and crafted."
--Pat Conroy
