ABOUT THIS BOOK

Revenge. A dish best served cold. Or if you’re Sydney native Lola Wedd, with a broken heart and a life in chaos, a dish served up by heading to India to marry a total stranger as part of an international visa scam.

Lola naïvely thought she would ‘find herself’ in India. Instead she is enmeshed in a drama worthy of Bollywood, starring an abandoned Pariah dog, a dead civil servant, a vengeful actor, a suicidal housewife, a boutique hotel owner, a blushing chauffeur, an absent groom, an ambitious girl journalist and a megalomaniac monkey.

As Lola begins to understand the consequences of her choices, she ignites a series of events that lead to a Diwali Festival more explosive than anyone in New Delhi could have imagined.


WHAT PEOPLE ARE SAYING ABOUT THIS BOOK

I so loved Dogs of India - fun, clever, imaginative and with a deeper/more important message at its core that Polly so cleverly manages to convey without getting heavy handed. I can't wait to read more from her!

- Georgia Madden - Author of Confessions of a Once Fashionable Mum

WHAT PEOPLE ARE SAYING ABOUT THIS BOOK

Unputdownable (is that even a word?!) Nevertheless thanks to the beautifully descriptive imagery when you pick up this book you are truly immersed in what it must be like to live in New Delhi. The smell of Indian spices, the colours of Diwali and the odorous stench of the city literally leap from the page as you become embroiled in life in the city. A wonderfully poignant piece, cleverly told, with a clear message made all the better for the superb characterisation of the main players who you seem to love, hate, loathe (briefly) and then ultimately feel sorry for.
Highly recommended!

- Jonathan Kidd

WHAT PEOPLE ARE SAYING ABOUT THIS BOOK

If you have read 'The Life of Pi' by Yann Martel or ' We Are All Completely beside Ourselves' by Karen Joy Fowler… or, perhaps 'Water for Elephants' by Sarah Gruen… I guarantee you will enjoy 'Dogs of India’.

- Clare Calvet, book reviewer Tony Delroy’s Nightlife – ABC 702

WHAT PEOPLE ARE SAYING ABOUT THIS BOOK

Bollywood in a book that packs political punch... Smell the spices, see the colours, love and loathe the characters. Step into this bookish Bollywood and enjoy the flash of sequins, the stain of henna and a lot more theatricality and thinking besides.

- Marjorie Lewis-Jones - A Bigger Brighter World

ABOUT POLLY

Polly McGee is one part writer, and many parts assorted thinker, do-er, talker, eater, drinker, explorer and dog wrangler. She has worked in kitchens, bars and restaurants from frantic to fancy, managed multi-million dollar innovation grants programs, worked with hundreds of start-ups to refine their business ideas and source funding, and championed causes from a variety of soapboxes, lecterns and stages.

Gender studies and women’s rights locally and globally feature strongly in her academic work, as does the expression of identity through story and narrative. She is a passionate believer in philanthropy and the power of giving, and strongly advocates a collective community approach to wealth and skills distribution. Polly is a bowerbird for technology and innovation and a founder of entrepreneur support organisation Start-up Tasmania. She loves crowdfunding, crowdsourcing and has been known to crowdsurf like no one is watching.

Polly emphatically believes that the answer to most of life’s question can be solved with meditation, barrel aged Negronis and patting retired greyhounds, in no particular order.
