A book review of Summers Under the Tamarind Tree – Recipes & Memoirs from Pakistan by Sumayya Usmani. I love reading! Books have been my companion for as long as I can remember. My favorite genre has to be fantasy – tales filled with magic and mystery maybe a dragon or two. However, I keep switching from genre to genre depending on my mood. There was a time in university when all I would read was chick-lit and romance – predictable…
