Read some reviews:
It is a truth universally acknowledged, that an Indian woman in possession of a son with an
engineering degree, must be in want of a daughter-in-law with an outsized dowry.
Which can be a problem when said son is vehemently opposed to dowry. He is also opposed to
city living, to meddlesome neighbours, to wacky grandfathers and to caustic grandmothers. But when
he’s blessed with all of the above, what’s man to do?
From the author of ‘Tell A Thousand Lies’. Shortlisted for the ‘2012 Tibor Jones South Asia prize’.
UK’s Glam magazine calls this novel one of their ‘five favourite tales from India.’
Also, author of ‘The Temple Is Not My Father.’
