Chatting With Author Padma Viswanathan

in: hosted by Leila Lemghalef

Chatting With Author Padma Viswanathan Out of a discussion with her grandmother about their family’s history, Padma Viswanathan had the novel, The Toss of a Lemon. This book is not simply a story, but a cultural reflection of the world in which Viswanathan’s great-grandmother – a Brahmin – lived. The Brahmin is the class of Hinduism which refers to the preachers and scholars. The tale of this widow, who is forced to live a socially restricted and difficult life, showcases life in India as has never been written before. In this video, WatchMojo.com speaks with Viswanathan about the research involved in The Toss of a Lemon.
