Sobre este título:
Críticas: 'A fascinating, kaleidoscopic journey through one of the most beautiful yet besieged areas in the world -- Jaspreet Singh brings out the full poetry and heartbreak of Kashmir' Manil Suri 'Jaspreet Singh's Chef carries the scents of cardamon, ice and sweat, is written with such a keen sense of rhythm that you can hear the book as you read it, and is placed not only between India and Pakistan but intriguingly between delicate cuisines and crude politics. The novel is transporting -- an experience that is not easily laid to rest' Mark Kurlansky 'Chef is a haunting evocation of the emotional and physcial landscapes of war-torn Kashmir. Jaspreet Singh is a very learned, gifted, and sensitive writer' Basharat Peer
