    A poetic family saga of modern India

    The Pleasure Seekers is a modern family saga about four generations of the Patel family of India. It begins in 1968 when Prem Kumar Patel sends his oldest son, Babo, off to study in London, only to have Babo fall madly in love with, and eventually marry, a Welsh girl named Sian whom he brings home to the strange world of Madras and the Patels' Jain religion. This is only the first of several cross-cultural encounters and bold going forths that will shape the lives of Prem Kumar and his family. Moving swiftly through the family's experiences, and through the traumatic events of India's recent history, author Tishani Doshi tells a captivating and believable story in spellbinding and sumptuous prose. Her characters are immediately engaging, and their struggles to find their own identities amidst the passion and tragedy of a complex world, are compelling and convincing. There are passages of such startling insight and poetic beauty that they are worth reading again and again. I highly recommend The Pleasure Seekers, and I hope this young author will give us more.
