Summary

For the young girls and women brought to life in this exquisitely wrought collection of stories, the possibility of change, of starting anew, is at once terrifying and filled with promise. Each story is complete in itself; together they create a tapestry as colorful, as delicate, and as enduring as the finest silk sari.

In this collection of short stories, the author explores the "differences between women's lives in India, the country of her birth, and in the U.S.,. . . {including} arranged marriages orchestrated by parents."(Booklist)

Stories on Indian women in the U.S. In Clothes, a bride's fairy-tale vision of America is shattered when her husband who runs a convenience store is murdered and she must face the future on her own, while in The Word Love, a woman's affair with a married man ruins her relationship with her mother.
