Ramnanan_Nothing Like Love


“Ramnanan’s delightful debut novel leads the reader on a gratifyingly witty and insightful romp through smalltown politics.”
Publishers Weekly

“A whole lot of memorable fun in this amusing debut novel. Ramnanan delights in describing a Trinidad that’s vivid and full of colour…But those descriptions, wonderfully evocative as they are, merely set the stage for the exuberant storyline, which Ramnanan imbues with humour and peoples with captivating characters, among the chief pleasures of the novel. . . Her writing builds on the tradition of other great Trinidadian-Canadian novelists, including Shani Mootoo, André Alexis and Rabindranath Maharaj, but she sets off down her own path with a charming comedic voice – and the promise of vastly entertaining things to come.”
– Laurie Grassi, The Globe and Mail

“Ramnanan’s masterfully written romp has it all: spicy Caribbean food, love intrigue, political corruption, Bollywood-style dance, farce, gossip, friendship, beaches, rum punch, Hindi music, and an elaborate wedding. It’s a story filled with heart, wisdom, and family . . . a rollicking and sassy miracle of a novel.”
-Kathryn Kuitenbrouwer, author of All the Broken Things
