Ved, a 36-year-old Indian in Silicon Valley, works for Omnicon, the world's largest computer networking company whose culture he finds both sad and comical. Its quietly brewing troubles will soon engulf him, even as he must deal with the turmoil in his relationships with Sasha, a Russian escort, and Liz, a spiritual-liberal American.
"A fiercely honest and insightful story, with richly painted characters I could empathize with readily. The female characters are strong and the author gets into their minds in a way that is refreshing and illuminating."--Cherry Mosteshar, author and journalist
"A moving and insightful portrayal of the immigrant's exile from authenticity. Written in the language of human relationships, Arora's novel will speak to anyone who's been a stranger in a strange land." --Anil Menon, novelist and editor
"Namit Arora writes with an enviable briskness and ease, and produces an engaging, incisive portrait of the Indian techie in Silicon Valley. A California Story describes immigrant life with empathy but without pulling any punches. Arora's California is a space of innovation and discovery, but also challenge and alienation. Readers will be amused, saddened, angered and educated as they read this rigorously unsanitized version of the desi dream." --Suvir Kaul, AM Rosenthal Professor of English, University of Pennsylvania.
Pick up and hold this brilliant mirror in your hand. What you see in it may disturb you, may change you.
If you are Indian and have recently moved to the US, I'd definitely recommend this book. A great blend of humor, existential analysis of society and a commentary of America's short comings keeps you hooked.
