Praise for My Books

"Manreet Sodhi Someshwar is a gifted writer of great promise. I have a gut feeling we have a new star rising in Punjab's literary horizon. She has an excellent command of English and a sly sense of humour."
- Khushwant Singh on The Long Walk Home

"An enjoyable tale of a sassy girl's headlong race up the corporate ladder."
- India Today on Earning the Laundry Stripes

My current work-in-progress novel wins City College New York's 'The Jerome Lowell DeJur Award in Creative Writing (Fiction)'. 

After feeling faintly stunned, I was happy. But I have to admit, my strongest feeling is one of relief: there might be light at the end of the tunnel yet. 

This novel has challenged me, and continues to do so, and the award lets me tell myself 'Say not the struggle naught availeth' ...

Some pics from the award ceremony :)
