Editorial Reviews

Editorial Reviews

The World We Found is stunning in its credibility and nuance…This is a novel that rewards reading, and even re-reading. The World We Found is a powerful meditation.” Boston Globe
“Umrigar renders a vivid portrait of modern-day India as she meditates upon the power of friendship, loyalty, and love. Like her previous works, The World We Found is eloquent and evocative, bitter and sweet.” Booklist (starred review)
