Tova Reich - Mother India

Upcoming Event
Sunday, November 4, 2018 - 1:00pm to 2:00pm

Lushly descriptive and richly satirical, Reich’s new novel is an utterly original take on the tradition of Americans searching for self-discovery in India. For Meena, the Jewish-American lesbian who narrates the story, India isn’t just a place of pilgrimage—she intends to stay there. For her mother, planning her funeral and cremation, India will also be a final destination. But for Meena’s daughter, India is another stage of a difficult upbringing, one complicated by Geeta, Meena’s ex-wife and Manika, the servant who is loyal to a fault. Then there’s Meena’s twin brother, a rabbi and fugitive, now seeking to become a guru. Reich’s previous novels include My Holocaust and One Hundred Philistine Foreskins, with her stories appearing in The Atlantic and Harper’s.
