“Tender and heartfelt, Now You See us also manages to be laugh-out-loud funny while offering searing commentary on misogyny, race, and class. An uplifting story of courage and hope that will keep you enthralled until the very last page.” — Jean Kwok, New York Times bestselling author of Searching for Sylvie Lee
"A truly irresistible read. Intricately plotted, propulsive, and provocative, NOW YOU SEE US showcases an author at the peak of her talents." — Kirstin Chen, New York Times bestselling author of Counterfeit
"An entertaining tale with unforgettable characters that manages to also offer an insider’s trenchant social commentary."  — Cheryl Lu-Lien Tan, author of the international bestseller, Sarong Party Girls
“Jaswal tackles serious themes (arranged vs forced marriage, traditional vs modern culture) with a light and funny touch. A page-turner your commute will thank you for.” — Glamour Magazine on Erotic Stories for Punjabi Widows
“By turns erotic, romantic, and mysterious, this novel of women defying patriarchial strictures enchants.” — Kirkus Reviews on Erotic Stories for Punjabi Widows
“Charming. . . . This is a sparkling read.” — Publishers Weekly on Erotic Stories for Punjabi Widows
“A playful yet profound novel [that] moves easily from heartfelt to humorous…what may seem to be a singular story about first-generation London-bred Punjabi women evolves into a story universal to us all.” — USA Today on The Unlikely Adventures of the Shergill Sisters
“An absolute delight…sad, joyful, and exciting all at the same time.” — Bookpage (starred review) on The Unlikely Adventures of the Shergill Sisters
“I loved this novel—it’s so big-hearted and earthy and funny. Best of all, it turns many preconceptions upside down, and opens up a world that so many of us have only glimpsed. A rattlingly good story.” — Deborah Moggach, author of The Best Exotic Marigold Hotel, on Erotic Stories for Punjabi Widows
