The Jhas are moving up. For the past 30 years, their lives have been defined by cramped spaces and gossipy neighbors. But in this "delightful comedy of manners" (NPR), when Mr. Jha comes into an enormous sum of money—the result of an unexpectedly successful internet venture—he moves his reluctant wife from their housing complex in East Delhi to the super-rich side of town, ultimately forcing them, and their son, to reckon with who they are and what really matters to them.
"Culture and capital clash in Basu's charming, funny debut.... A modern and heartfelt comedy of haves and have-nots."—Publishers Weekly (starred review)
