Simar Malhotra writes with earnestness and fluency in a voice both endearing and moving. Her second novel #TidesDon’tCross marks her as a promising new voice in Indian fiction. She depicts complex relationships amazingly well. A must read.
Dr Shashi Tharoor, Member of Parliament
A thoughtful portrayal of love in our time. With powerful narration and complex characterizations, Simar weaves a memorable tale about people in their rawest, most loveable forms. A second-time writer, Simar is fluent and rather paints with her words.
Vivek Anand Oberoi (Actor and Philanthropist)
Simar Malhotra’s novel is a riveting love story of our time. Malhotra brings unforgettable characters to life as we follow them from New Delhi to Paris to New York as they navigate new relationships in the wake of old ones. The world of this novel is so large and richly imagined that readers will continue to inhabit it long after reading the last astonishing page.

Simar Malhotra is an exciting new voice in fiction. In Tides Don't Cross, she has given us a moving and perceptive exploration of the way that family and culture sometimes define us and sometimes gives us the resistance we need to define ourselves
Dr Edward Porter, Professor, Stanford University
Simar Malhotra flows like a river. She takes us with her until we are lost in her world only to find ourselves reflected in her characters and then the sea engulfs us.

I thoroughly enjoyed reading your second novel Tides Don’t Cross. The sensitivity with which you write and the depth of characters you portray belie the fact that you are just 21 years old. A voracious reader that I am, I can’t recall any author who writes as well as at your young age
