Synopses & Reviews

Publisher Comments:

Ageless traditions and modern-day mores collide in this witty yet deeply compassionate debut story collection set in contemporary India. Wry humor and a delicious grasp of the friction between generations in Bangalore, India's own Silicon Valley, are the hallmarks of Lavanya Sankaran's fresh and original talent. In her masterful stories, a successful young entrepreneur is shaken when his partner cavalierly reneges on their plan to return to America; a traditional Indian mother slyly circumvents her Western-educated daughter's resistance to marriage; a neighborhood gossip is determined to discover what goes on behind the closed curtains of the hip young couple across the street; a chauffeur must reconcile his more traditional credos with his employer's miniskirted lifestyle. With the keen eye of such writers as Diane Johnson and Nick Hornby, Lavanya Sankaran takes her place among the brightest social chroniclers in today's fiction.
