"In One Day We'll All Be Dead and None of This Will Matter, Scaachi Koul deploys her razor sharp humor to share all the fears, outrages, and mortifying moments of her life. She learned from an early age what made her miserable, and for Scaachi anything can be cause for despair. Whether it's a shopping trip gone awry; enduring awkward conversations with her bikini waxer; overcoming her fear of flying while vacationing halfway around the world; dealing with internet trolls, or navigating the fears and anxieties of her parents. Alongside these personal stories are pointed observations about life as a woman of color, where every aspect of her appearance is open for critique, derision, or outright scorn. Where strict gender rules bind in both Western and Indian cultures, leaving little room for a woman not solely focused on marriage and children to have a career (and a life) for herself"--… (lisätietoja)

***after rereading my own review***
After waiting a while and rereading my won review I don't feel any different. But it does feel like I veered off topic. This book very much invites you to. To talk about what you just read. To question what the writer meant. It doesn't always end in heavy conversations. But it certainly can start them.

***Initial review***
Partner: "Why does she keep talking about white people?"
Me: "... I can't even imagine where to start with that explanation."
This was such an uncomfortable read at times. It made me think about my own place in my culture. In my family. In the world. As a person. As a woman. As a child of two cultures.

But it was a good read. One of the best I had this year.

It made me cry. It made me angry. It made me laugh. It started uncomfortable conversations with my partner who didn't understand my reactions. It made me adore him even more. It made me angry at him for not understanding. It made me feel.

I feel like I learned something about a culture not my own while shaking my head because it felt so foreign.

I would recommend this to everyone but I do think not everyone would get something out of it like I did. The reason why would be part of the conversation about why she keeps talking that way about white people.
You either get it or you don't. And when you get it... Keep talking to other people who get it. You're not alone.
If you don't get it. Keep asking questions. And try to remove your own personal experiences from the conversation.

Scaachi Koul gets it. But even better, she tries to explain. ( )

audiobook read by author (with quotes added by her father) biographical essays and observations from Canadian-born daughter of Indian immigrants

it seems like a lot of people had trouble relating to this author's experiences, but that's sort of the point. There is no "one experience" for all brown people, just as there's not one experience for all Canadians or Americans. The point is to get more of these diverse voices out there so that people can be more aware of this fact, and to help us build empathy with folks whose cultures are unfamiliar.

I strongly recommend the audio version; she's funny and it probably sets the tone better than the print version.

I did find the essay where she talks about "party culture" and getting roofied multiple times on different occasions to be eye-opening and important (horrifying, really), especially in light of current events. I would make every teen girl read it (and probably all genders, followed by an open discussion about consent, alcoholism, and alcohol-induced blackouts) if it would keep everyone safer. ( )

Sometimes hilarious (often including Indian family dynamics); sometimes delving into the horrible (rape culture). In the audio version, the author's dad speaks his own parts. ( )

A collection of essays from a Canadian journalist at Buzzfeed in which she reflects on the experience of being the child of immigrants, finding her way between two cultures, the experience of being brown, and her experiences as a woman. Funny and scathing, Koul is an intriguing voice. ( )

(I am so far behind in reviews. I have so many to do and, as the three readers of my blog have noticed, I stopped doing anything about that months ago and *sigh*. Then, instead of writing the reviews, I just go straight to my dealer, i.e. Netgalley, and request more books and then the publishers on Netgalley give them to me. Why have you not cut me off, Netgalley? Plus I buy books and go to the library and I am totally going to die by being crushed by the huge piles of unread books I have all around my house. And, of course, the books from Netgalley expire, so then I take them out of the library and review them because I can't let some multinational publishing conglomerate down. Plus the new Wordpress editing system annoys me because I hate change. If I were a true reviewer, I'd make a plan to review at least 52 books this year, or something. But no, I'll just go to the bookstore, then the library, then Netgalley and add to my unread pile so that, when crushed, it will take an excavator to dig my mummified corpse free.)

I decided, before opening the book, that I was going to dislike One day we'll all be dead and none of this will matter by Scaachi Koul.
I based this on the following reasons:


  1. she is younger than me;

  2. she is more successful than me; and

  3. I read a similar book a few years ago and found the narrator insufferable and idiotic;



Then I opened Koul's book and was annoyed with myself because it was good and amusing at times and heart-rending at others and dammit why are people more talented than me? How is that fair? And I shouldn't prejudge books. I learned my lesson (although I reserve the right to prejudge any books with side-boobs on the cover).

Essays on being female, being Canadian, being first-generation, having boyfriends, having friends, people who are jerks, etc. Depth but not smothering (like how my piles of books are going to smother me if they don't shatter all my bones first). I enjoyed reading it.

One day we'll all be dead and none of this will matter by Scaachi Koul went on sale March 7, 2017.
I received a copy free from Netgalley in exchange for an honest review. ( )
