Praise for Karma and Other Stories:

"This excellent debut collection is deceptively easy to read. . . A great recommendation not only for fans of Jhumpa Lahiri’s The Namesake but also for fans of F. Scott Fitzgerald's elegant studies of a culture that is both familiar and foreign. " - Booklist

"Only the finest writers can craft short stories with the richness of a novel, and that is precisely what Reddi has done in this exceptional debut collection….a most impressive achievement." - Arthur Golden, author of Memoirs of a Geisha

"Sad, sweet, tender - truly a lovely book. " - Kiran Desai, author of The Inheritance of Loss and winner of The Man Booker Prize
