Biting through the Skin: An Indian Kitchen in America's Heartland
Biting through the Skin tells a powerful archetypical story of American identity, of being a stranger in a strange land even in one's home , and of navigating a dual self that in Furstenau's rendering is both comfortingly familiar, yet startlingly fresh. Biting through the Skin is wonderfully captivating.
