Wife by Bharati Mukherjee [in What Do I Read Next? Multicultural Literature]

Wife MukherjeeYoung, naive Dimple Dasgupta marries an engineer bound for the U.S. and embarks on a new American adventure. But her expectations – of being married, of being a dutiful wife, of living a glamorous new life in the U.S. – is far from reality.

Bharati Mukherjee’s second novel deals frankly with domestic violence in a shrouded immigrant community. She is regarded and regaled as one of the doyennes of South Asian diasporic literature, and one of the earliest South Asian voices published by major mainstream presses.
