Watchung Booksellers Welcomes Debut Author Naheed Phiroze Patel

MONTCLAIR, NJ — Watchung Bookseller welcomes debut author Naheed Phiroze Patel to present her novel “Mirror Made of Rain.” She’ll be in conversation with Raluca Albu, online literature Editor at BOMB magazine on Thursday, May 26, at 7:00 p.m.

“Mirror Made of Rain” is the story of Noomi Wadia, a successful journalist with a quick wit and quick temper. When she falls in love and plans to marry, she is faced with the patriarchal rituals of old and finds herself in the same trappings of older generations. At times funny and tragic, Patel’s exhilarating debut novel is a riveting exploration of class and tradition in contemporary India.
