"A wildly talented writer."

VICTOR LAVALLE

"By turns fizzy and funny, poignant and sad,

A Mirror Made of Rain is an acute, intensely readable exploration of hurt and resilience."

NAMITA GOKHALE

"Naheed Phiroze Patel paints a delicate and ironic portrait of small-town India as seen through the rueful and self-ironizing eyes of a young Parsi who will not make a grab for the brass ring."

JERRY PINTO

"A Mirror Made of Rain is luminous – a blistering and unflinching commentary on family, love, pain, addiction and destruction. We are lucky to have Naheed Phiroze Patel writing."

 

DIKSHA BASU

"Naheed Phiroze Patel’s sharp, glittering prose powerfully reveals the raw underbelly of a damaged family in this terrific debut."
