My brother-in-law is marrying an Indian woman so I have been trying to learn more about Indian culture so I was excited to find this book on many “must-read” lists. This is a story of the Jha family, who for 30 years have lived in a cramped housing complex in East Dehli until a website Mr. Jha created is sold for an incredible amount of money – a windfall of money comes their way and the Jhas struggle with their new identities as wealthy.

Meanwhile, their son is failing out of college in New York, and their move to an upper-class subdivision complex comes with complications. At the heart of it all is family and one family’s struggle to fit in and belong to a community.
