Virtual Author Interview With Alka Joshi
August 13, 2020
Join CapRadio and host Donna Apidone for a virtual author interview with Alka Joshi about her debut novel, The Henna Artist, a New York Times bestseller. Joshi takes readers to 1950's India, where 17-year-old Lakshmi escapes an arranged and abusive marriage to start a new life in Jaipur as a henna artist — and confidante — to the city's upper-caste elite women. In this complex society, she must work cautiously to build and protect her reputation from the "gossip-eaters" who spread humiliation like oil.

The Henna Artist is an amiable and entertaining debut novel about an important theme — balancing family with personal ambition — that allows readers to escape into a fantasy teeming with sensory pleasure.
Alka Joshi’s debut novel is so evocative, so expressive and so exotic that it leads me to suggest she drop whatever else she is doing and write a second novel — like now.
