The Mango Season by Amulya Malladi [in AsianWeek]

Mango SeasonA young woman returns to her home in India after a seven-year absence and has a difficult time telling her family about her non-Indian fiancé. The story is an otherwise entertaining light read about an extended family with dysfunctions that most APAs will recognize, but is ultimately marred by too many tedious, annoying references to the mixed union. We all either have parents or know parents who would keel over if we married “out,” but repetition of the fact does not necessarily make for good literature.
