Reviews

  • A dazzling tale of misbegotten dreams and desires, hopes and expectations, woven with poetry and storyteller magic.

  • I read Chitra Banerjee Divakaruni’s novel The Mistress of Spices and felt excited and empowered by the way she used words

    Guardian
  • An unusual, clever, and often exquisite first novel...The result is rather as if Isabel Allende met Laura Esquivel.

    Los Angeles Times
  • A splendid novel, beautifully conceived and crafted.

    Pat Conroy
  • Mythical and mystical, Mistress of Spices is reminiscent of fables and fairy tales. . . . The story Divakaruni tells is transporting, but it is her gift for metaphor that makes this novel live and breathe, its pages as redolent as any freshly ground spice.
