The Best Exotic Marigold Hotel

 The Best Exotic Marigold Hotel (with Judi Dench, Tom Wilkinson, Bill Nighy, Dev Patel) is out on Blu-Ray and DVD today – but before it was a film, it was a novel by Deborah Moggach.
Today, Deborah is participating in an author Q&A at Goodreads where you can ask her questions about the novel, her writing, The Best Exotic Marigold Hotel being turned into a film – or the end result.

Or just check out what other people have asked and her responses!

Here’s the Goodreads group for the Q&A.

If you don’t know about The Best Exotic Marigold Hotel here’s the synopsis along with a clip:
British retirees travel to India to take up residence in what they believe is a newly restored hotel. Less luxurious than its advertisements, the Marigold Hotel nevertheless slowly begins to charm in unexpected ways.

    1. That's good to hear - I hope to be able to see the movie soon :)

  2. Huh, I have Best Exotic on my to-rent list but didn't know it was a book first!

    1. I don't think I knew it was a book for quite a while, either. (It may have had a different title prior to the movie?)
