When I received this signed copy of Cracking India, I was delighted to see what great shape it was in and I looked forward to reading a "new" Bapsi Sidwha" novel. To my surprise, I discovered that "Cracking India" is a new name for the old novel "Ice Candy Man" that I have in paper back and bought in Pakistan in the early 1990s and that Bapsi Sidwha graciously signed for me then. Sidwha is one of the most delightful authors I have ever read and I would recommend any of her books highly. I am happy to have the signed hardcover "Cracking India" book, but probably would not have bought it had I known it was "Old Wine in a New Bottle". Maybe, in your book blurbs you could let people know that this is an old novel w. a new name.
