The Parcel by local author Anosh Irani was a finalist for the Writers’ Trust Fiction Prize and for the Governor General’s Literary Award. I thoroughly enjoyed it. It was one of those books I thought I was going to be trudging through because of the serious subject matter (the main character is a transgender sex worker in Bombay); however, it was really well written and quite the page-turner. This book has been described as “difficult and moving, surprising and tender.” I finished it over a weekend! (Submitted by Surinder).
