Book Review: Mrs Funnybones

Mrs Funnybones

Mrs Funnybones


Mrs Funnybones is Twinkle Khanna’s debut book after a spate of articles in Times of India (TOI) and Daily News Analysis (DNA). The book is an eclectic mix of some of her articles in the past along with stories from her household represented in a satirical and witty manner.

The blurb goes like this:

Full of wit and delicious observations, Mrs Funnybones captures the life of the modern Indian woman—a woman who organizes dinner each evening, even as she goes to work all day, who runs her own life but has to listen to her Mummyji, who worries about her weight and the state of the country.
