BOOK: First Darling of the Morning: Selected Memories of an Indian Childhood by Thirty Umrigar
This book is a retellingof th life of the author. in a very candid, whimsical, almost humorous manner, Thirty writes about the pains and joys of a childhood in Mumbai India. I really enjoy her writing style.in just ONE story, she had quickly risen up the ranks to becomming one of my favorite writters. she talks about her obsession wit writting even from early in her childhood. I love people with word obsessions.....they are like me. i am even more drawn to them because i have never met a person face to face with a word obsession, so when i READ about one i am drawn in to them personally.
