This is a 1500 plus odd pages novel written about a search for a bride groom through the Indian Arranged Marriage process. The setting is in the 1950s after the Indian independence. BBC Channel 4 made a radio adaptation. I did not read the book but the radio adaption was really impressive.
Jhumpa Lahiri won the Pulitzer Prize for this book of short stories. It is about immigrants to the US and their lives and how they adjust to new settings and but still hold on to their country roots. Jhumpa has the unique way of writing and you feel as if you are living and seeing it in reality.
