I didn’t know much about this book when I started it. It did represent a complete sea change from the previous book I had read, though.

A Good Indian Wife follows the story of a modern Indian couple who find themselves living in California in an arranged marriage. There is a culture clash between the Indian diaspora and society back on the Indian subcontinent. It makes for an interesting examination of marriage, relationships, culture, and tradition.
