The Invitation Reviews
"Starred Review. Cherian's straightforward storytelling is riveting and rarely goes amiss (save for an instance of deus ex machina to resolve a pivotal scene), and the climax is fervent." - Publishers Weekly
"Purporting to look closely at the Indian experience in America, Cherian comes up with a less-than-flattering picture; the friends are all obsessed with what the others will think about their children, choice of spouse, financial status, and physical appearance. Concluding with some hasty surface resolutions, the book finally nudges uncomfortably into caricature." - Library Journal
"A mostly entertaining, sometimes thoughtful, but not terribly demanding Indian beach read." - Kirkus Reviews
