Purchased this book at the author's signing event at B&N. Having known the author for years I was very interested in reading his novel. I was amazed at the quality of his first book and have hoped he would further his writing career. I found the book to be a pleasant and joyful read and the discussions of a family over meals and life's simple pleasures make this a must read. I passed this book along to my children to read.

Recommends it for: Anyone wanting some insight into the experience of immigrants in India to Texas
I picked up this novel at a Book and Author dinner for the local Literacy Council. He is an engineer from India who settled in the Houston suburbs, just like the hero of his story. The book is easy reading and not very artful, but I liked the author's sincere affection for Texas and Houston.
