Currently reading: Life Isn't All Ha Ha Hee Hee by Meera Syal. Her name might sound familiar to non-readers...but probably only if you are a fan of Goodness Gracious Me. I do believe she plays the wonderfully catty Smita Smitten.... the woman with the means to get into celebrity circles, or so she'd have us believe.
Delightful story bout 3 Asian women in the UK. her characters are funny and quite well-developed. Only about 1/5 of the way through though.
