Editorial Reviews

“A lilting, funny, warmhearted book.” Sophie Kinsella, New York Times bestselling author
“A charming novel, fascinating in its depiction of a rich and exotic texture, yet filled with characters as familiar as your next-door neighbors.” Ann B. Ross, New York Times bestselling author of the Miss Julia novels
“Farahad Zama’s thoroughly entertaining debut novel captivates and delights. In marrying a uniquely Indian tale of culture and tradition to a universal story of family bonds tested and love triumphant, Zama has arranged a perfect match.” Jennifer Chiaverini, New York Times bestselling author
“Zama’s strength is in showing the love that makes the matchmaking system possible, looking at the reciprocity, trust, and devotion that underlie marriage…Zama’s delightful world of mid-morning tea breaks, afternoon siestas, picnics in mango groves, and meddlesome aunties is a pleasant place to hang out.” Publishers Weekly
“Zama’s debut novel captivates the reader as an entertaining chronicle of a contemporary Indian matchmaking service and as insightful commentary on the lingering dictates of religion and class in modern India…Zama sprinkles his lively narrative with morsels of everyday life and age-old traditions, from marriage and burial rituals to the making of mung-bean crepes—all of which enrich and enliven his simple and engaging plot.” Booklist
“Charming…Fans of Alexander McCall Smith’s intrepid Precious Ramotswe are likely to find an equally engaging protagonist in Mr. Ali.” Kirkus Reviews
