Desirable Daughters

A Novel

“The highlight of her career to date . . . Mukherjee bursts out as a star” (Publishers Weekly [starred review]) in her stirring novel of three women, two continents, and a perilous journey from the old world to the new–now available in paperback. In the tradition of the Joy Luck Club, Bharati Mukherjee has written a remarkable novel that is both the portrait of a traditional Brahmin Indian family and a contemporary American story of a woman who has in many ways broken with tradition but still remains tied to her native country. Mukherjee follows the diverging paths taken by three extraordinary Calcutta-born sisters as they come of age in a changing world. Moving effortlessly between generations, she weaves together fascinating stories of the sisters’ ancestors, childhood memories, and dramatic scenes from India’s history.
