Booklist Review: "Narayan is an Indian native who immigrated to the U.S. as a young adult, married, and gave birth to two children in New York City. After 20 successful years together, Shoba and her husband decided they missed home. They wanted their children to understand their heritage and know their grandparents. So they moved back to Bangalore. When the family is greeted by a cow in the elevator of their new apartment building, Shoba's fascination with India's cow-fever begins. Before long, Shoba is buying milk directly from the cow, courtesy of the milk lady, Sarala, who sells her wares across the street. When one of Sarala's cows is struck by a truck, Sarala asks Shoba to buy her another one, thus beginning the author's adventures in picking out the perfect cow. Narayan's memoir explores many of the ways that cows are essential to life in India. Filled with the vivid colors, sights, and sounds of a vibrant and ancient culture, Narayan's in-depth treatment of cow mythology is a beautiful ode to her motherland.--Brock, Emily Copyright 2017 Booklist"
