Uma is a fellow spirit, and it has been a great privilege to get to know her and her books.

I love her blog and website, which reflects the gentle, intelligent, humorous person that she is.

Although her books beautifully reflect her Indian origins, their humanity is universal.

So wonderful to listen to this thought-provoking conversation with a great storyteller like Uma. Thank you for this podcast. It’s amazing how hearing someone’s voice grants you insight into personality in a way that email can’t convey. Her fictional voice has the same warmth and hospitality as her real one!
