273 pp, large 8vo (9 1/2" H). "(B)rings to life the people and the dilemmas of India today, through the prism of (Giridharadas') emigre family history and his childhood memories of India. Traveling through villages and small towns and big cities, he introduces us to entrepreneurs, radicals, industrialists, and religious seekers, but, most of all, to Indian families. As he finds his way in a country at once familiar and surprising, (he) writes in vivid detail of India's own reinventions: how parents and children, husbands and wives, cousins and siblings are seizing hold of their destinies, bending the meaning of Indianness, and enduring the pangs of the old birthing the new. Through their stories and his own, he paints an intimate portrait of a country becoming modern while striving to remain itself." Very light wrinkling at top/bottom of spine. Dust jacket has soft wrinkle at top of rear flap.
