Jamie Zaccaria | 219 comments Marriage of a Thousand Lies is about a young married couple, Lucky and Kris, who are actually both gay and only married to each other to hide their sexuality from their families and community.

This was a good book that thoroughly envelopes you in the Sri Lankan-American culture as well as the modern LGBT struggle. I really felt for the main character who was torn between two worlds. I thought the pacing was a bit off in the second half and the ending abrupt, but the more I think about it, that's what real life can be like. As an LGBT woman, it makes me appreciate the openness and acceptance in my own support system and is a sober reminder that it's not like that for everyone.

3.5 Stars

I live in the SF bay area and I think that I often take it for granted that people are pretty accepting of the LGBT lifestyle. I don't know much about Sri Lanka, but is it primarily Muslim?
