A Wicked Old Woman by Ravinder Randhawa

 

A Wicked Old Woman

Drama. Masquerade. Mischief.

It is my great pleasure to bring you a promotional post for Ravinder Randhawa’s book ‘A Wicked Old Woman’ in association with Faye Rogers.

The story:

A sharply observed, witty and confident novel. Linguistically playful, entertaining and provoking.

In a bustling British city,  Kulwant mischievously masquerades as a much older woman, using her walking stick like a Greek chorus, ‘…stick-leg-shuffle-leg-shuffle…’ encountering new adventures and getting bruised by the jagged edges of her life. There’s the Punjabi punk who rescues her after a carefully calculated fall; Caroline, her gregarious friend from school days, who watched over her dizzy romance with ‘Michael the Archangel’, Maya the myopic who can’t see beyond her broken heart and Rani/Rosalind, who’s just killed a man …

Vividly bringing to life a bit of the 60s, 70s and 80s.
