BOOK REVIEW:
ONE DAY WE'LL ALL BE DEAD AND NONE OF THIS WILL MATTER BY SCAACHI KOUL

Title: One Day We'll Be Dead and None of This Will Matter
Author: Scaachi Koul
Published: 2017
Language: English
Pages: 256
Rating: 3/5


Summary:
In this essay collection, Koul explores womanhood, race and what it was like growing up as the daughter of Indian immigrants in Canada.


Review:
This book was a lot of what it promised; funny, interesting and heartfelt.

My favorite part of this book were the essays dealing with the author and her family, their history and the relationship between the different people, especially between Koul and her dad. I also enjoyed reading about her experience as a woman of color, both in Canada and in India, and it deals with a lot with being a woman in general, which I thought was done very well.

Although I think this has importance and relevant commentary to many of the topics the author explores, it does feel like it lacks a certain depth and I wanted more reflection. To be both funny and profound is a difficult thing to do and this is not quite there.

I chuckled a fair amount reading this though, and there are some excellent one-liners in here. I certainly hope to see more of Koul's work in the future, because I think it will be fantastic to see her amusing and unique voice progress.
