They are three Calcutta-born sisters-intelligent, artistic and extremely independent. Born into a wealthy Brahmin family presided over by their doting father and his traditionalist mother, the girls feel strangled by a society with little regard for young women. Rebelling against family and convention, the girls' heads and hearts take them in very different directions, where, in a clash of wills and circumstances, the inexorable bonds of their sisterhood will be tested as never before.

At the heart of this remarkable new novel by the award-winning author of The Middleman and Other Stories and Jasmine are the interwoven threads of culture, identity and family loyalty. In the tradition of The Joy Luck Club in its honest and compelling portrayal of the immigrant experience, Desirable Daughters is an unputdownable read.

BHARATI MUKHERJEE is the author of seven novels, twonon-fiction books and two collections of short stories, including TheMiddleman and Other Stories, for which she won the National BookCritics Circle Award. She is a professor of English at the University ofCalifornia, Berkeley, and lives in San Francisco.
