Koi Good News_Front 

Zarreen Khan:Koi Good News? is a really fun story about an urban couple dealing with the madness of a large intrusive family – basically the story of a lot of us! I’m really excited that Harper Collins India is publishing it and thrilled that there’s also going to be movie inspired by it. I hope that readers and the audiences get a really good laugh.’

Swati Daftuar, Commissioning Editor: ‘Zarreen’s is one of the freshest and most exciting voices in Indian fiction in English that I’ve read in a while. It’s effortless, irreverent and entirely contemporary. This is the Indian urban life, laid out in all its hilarious glory – warts and all! We’re so glad to be publishing her.’

Diya Kar, Publisher: ‘This is the big-hearted, warm-blooded, real-India novel we’ve been waiting for. Zarreen has you turning the pages, laughing out loud, saying: “Yes! I’ve been there.” I can’t think of many writers in India who do funny as well as Zarreen Khan. We are thrilled to publish her.’

About the book:

The hilarious private journal of a highly public pregnancy.

When Mona Mathur of Dehradun married her college sweetheart, Ramit Deol of Amritsar, there were two things she wasn’t prepared for:

  1. The size of the Deol family – it put any Sooraj Barjatya movie to shame.
  2. The fertility of the Deol family – they reproduced faster than any other species known to mankind.

It’s been four years since their wedding, and Mona and Ramit have done the unthinkable – they’ve remained childless. Of course, that also means that they’ve battled that one question day in and day out: ‘Koi Good News?’

Now, the truth is, Ramit and Mona had been trying to conceive for the past one year. But having a baby isn’t as easy as it’s made out to be. Finally, aided by the wine at their highly glamorous neighbours’ party, Mona gets pregnant. And so begins a crazy journey – complete with interfering relatives, nosy neighbours, disapproving doctors, and absolutely no privacy!

Honest, relevant and thoroughly irreverent, Koi Good News? is the funniest book you’ll read this year.

Author bio:

After working for Pepsi, Hindustan Times and ACNielsen for ten years, Zarreen Khan decided to take a break and raise two children, who are sometimes kind enough to let her roleplay as a marketing consultant. She lives in Delhi with her husband, dealing with the craziness of being half-Muslim and half-Punjabi, which is detrimental to her weight, sanity and sense of humour. Zarreen’s first book, I Quit, Now What?, was published in 2017. This is her second book.
