by Scaachi Koul
In One Day Well All Be Dead and None of This Will Matter, ScaachiKoul deploys her razor-sharp humor to share all the fears, outrages, andmortifying moments of her life. She learned from an early age what madeher miserable and for Scaachi, anything can be cause for despairwhether its a shopping trip gone awry, enduring awkward conversationswith her bikini waxer, overcoming her fear of flying while vacationinghalfway around the world, dealing with Internet trolls or navigating thefears and anxieties of her parents. Alongside these personal stories arepointed observations about life as a woman of color: where every aspectof her appearance is open for critique, derision or outright scorn; wherestrict gender rules bind in both Western and Indian cultures, leaving littleroom for a woman not solely focused on marriage and children to have acareer (and a life) for herself. With a sharp eye and biting wit, incomparable rising star and culturalobserver Scaachi Koul offers a hilarious, scathing and honest look atmodern life.
