Set in England, India and Ireland, a comic tale of outsiders on the inside, by a twenty-six-year-old London first-time novelist.When fat country cousin Mousumi is sent from India to her cosmopolitan relatives in London, she leaves behind both her widowed mother and a prospective husband for the dazzle of the Western world. In her new life she finds all customs turned on their head: henpecked husband Prakash stays at home, wife and mother Tuhina goes to work, and teenage daughter Darshini is out till dawn. Such an unconventional household terrifies Mousumi. Can she meet their high standards of taste? And will she begin to question the traditional rules she has always lived by?But love conquers all, does it not? And as Darshini and her boyfriend become serious, back in India a husband-hunt is in progress for Mousumi?s return. After a dangerous lovers? tiff takes place in the house, timid Mousumi begins to take control ...Love, jealousy and other human emotions resonate in the pages of this diverse human comedy. Its bittersweet portrayal of fish out of water points to a split culture in search of its own identity.
