Love in the Time of Affluenza, a Mumbai story

Editor | Fiction

Raising three beautiful children in her beautiful Bombay home with her aristocratic husband of 15 years – every bit the prince you read about in fairy tales – Natasha has it all. But when her closest friend drops the bombshell that she’s isn’t entirely fulfilled by her family and is having an affair, Natasha begins to ask some difficult questions about her own seemingly perfect life.

From the bestselling author Shunali Shroff comes a novel about being a wife, a mother and the woman you used to be before that.

Love in the Time of Affluenza is a hilarious, infinitely relatable and topical novel about trying to be the perfect modern Indian woman at a time when feminism is the hottest topic of the day.

“He never wants to touch me any longer, Natasha. It’s like he’s impotent or something.”

“That’s not impotence, that’s just what being married is like!”

Author Manu Joseph, in a blurb, gushed: “Finally an immensely enjoyable story about Mumbai’s rich that, like all good stories, rings so true with its adorable and suspiciously familiar characters.”
