Thinly veiled autobiographical novel written with 13-year-old Jason as narrator, this is Mitchell’s most accessible and conventional novel. The writing is excellent, the humor is subtle and the characters are plausible and sharply drawn.

Say you're a glamorous magazine writer with a serious Jimmy Choo habit, a weakness for five-star Balinese resorts, and a reputation for dating highborn British men. Then one day you find you're swooning over a most unlikely suitor, an Indian journalist who turns out to be a prince (of sorts), but whose family palace is falling to pieces, and whose intimidating mother, upon meeting you for the first time, examines your hair for dandruff. Would you run for the hills? Or would you soldier on for the sake of the man who just might be your soul mate?
