Trust no Aunty is a clever and amusing read. Both the writing and especially the art are sharp and impactful. The author makes fun of aspects of her culture as only an insider has the knowledge and the right to do. As the title informs us the victim being mocked is the interfering stifling "Auntie".
Interesting for me is the negative connotation of the title Auntie. My mom is second generation born and raised in India, and I experienced this title being used with respect and warmth by my Indian born cousins.
I think the book would have been as effective, biting and entertaining without the constant jarring and gratuitous peppering with expletives.
Fun read nonetheless.
