This subtle tale of cultures in conflict follows two women who meet at Berkeley during the 1940s through very different adulthoods in America and India. While Carol follows the life of the mind, Helen followed fellow student, Tej, to Punjab, married him, and thus entered into a menage h trois with Tej and his first wife. Through letters to Carol, Helen recounts her rough adjustment to Punjabi culture, where until 1952, bigamy was legal and divorce was rare. What unfolds with these letters is an unprejudiced comparison between the ambitious intellectual with a penchant for married men and the devoted wife in a very un-American arrangement. -- Publishers Weekly
