Reviews

LJ Reviews 2010 October #2

Giridharadas (columnist, International Herald Tribune) is a first-generation American whose parents migrated from India in the 1970s to "beat the odds of a bad system" in their native country. In a reverse migration, the author now reports on the way in which that system has changed. He argues that there has been a psychological change in India and a revolution in private life as well. Like a morality play, each chapter reflects a different inner quality, while woven together in the narrative are bits of the author's family history. The portraits—a Mumbai migrant worker, a lower-caste entrepreneur who owns finishing schools, the industrialist Mukesh Ambani, a septuagenarian Marxist poet, single working women, and the saga of two brothers—show the myriad ways in which India has changed and yet remains the same. VERDICT Some of the author's conclusions may be debatable to some familiar with India, but overall, the book is well thought out, and it will add to the growing genre of titles about postmillennial India, such as Mira Kamdar's Planet India.—Ravi Shenoy, Naperville P.L., IL
