Summertime and the Reading Is Easy II
I find Zama's writing style and the approach to this book very interesting. He is writing mainly to non-Indians, but one could see that he is also appealing to Indians who may not be Muslim or may not be Brahmin or may not be South Indian. He is ready to educate, entertain and engage the reader about Vizag of today. After the main story, he adds a charming appendix, entitled "Extracts from Mrs. Ali's English Essays." This is his opportunity to comment on language and custom, as well as give us more information on Vizag, Urdu, Telugu and even a recipe for halwa.
