"In a charmingly wry voice, [Jain] deftly interweaves the stories of friends, relatives and suitors, each tale illuminating another twist of the labyrinthine path to happiness offered by life in a subcontinent saturated by both tradition and technology. Jain’s assured, insouciant intellectualism is as engaging to the reader as it is problematic in her search for a mate. A sparkling, enjoyable look at how globalization affects love."
