Description

In a tiny flat in Bombay, Imelda Mendes - Em to her family - is by turns flamboyant, maniacally affectionate and cruelly candid.  Her husband - Augustine, the 'Big Hoom' - and two children must endure her 'microweathers': swings from searing joy to brooding malevolence. And here is the story of how this family of four came to be. Of how Imelda was courted by Augustine - 'Hello, Buttercup' - and of how with the passage of time and the arrival of her children she slowly turned into Em, loving and loathing a world terrified of her extravagant excesses .
