Synopses & Reviews
Drama. Food. Fashion. More drama. More food. Nosey aunties and uncles — and, of course, the universal language of love. These elements are a must-have for any Desi wedding, inclusive of people indigenous to India, Pakistan, Bangladesh, Nepal, and Sri Lanka. In this anthology, authors from various parts of the Desi community will share genre-bending stories that explore the lush traditions of their region, translating that universal language through the familiar lens of the Ultimate Family Gathering.
In this collection that centers hope, love, and family, readers will enjoy eight stories from both award-winning and debut authors.
