Description

"What I found most enjoyable about this novel is that it steers clear of stereotypes about Indian immigrant families. The Bhaves and the Moghes are refreshingly different from some families that inhabit the world of diasporic fiction. There are no daughters being threatened with arranged marriages, no authoritarian parents, and no weepy sentimentality about the land left behind."-(Nalini Iyer, on SAWNET Book Pages)

"This is the story of two families that not only dive deep into dangerous waters, but surface and live to tell the tale."-(Michelle Reale in Rain Taxi Online)

"A hymn to the joys and sorrows of family, in the best, most inclusive sense of the word." Andreas Schroeder
