When a woman—known only as Mother—moves her family from Atlanta to its wealthy suburbs, she discovers that neither the times nor the people have changed since her childhood in a small Southern town.

Laskar's stunning debut skillfully tackles hefty topics such as bullying, racism, and terrorism in a mosaic, life-flashing-before-one's-eyes narrative. Set in 2017 in a wealthy suburb near Atlanta, the novel centers on Mother, an Indian-American woman in her 40s with three daughters and a husband who travels internationally more than he's at home. Laskar touchingly shows how Mother just wants to have a normal life with her family and rise above prejudice. Elevated by its structure, this is a striking depiction of a single life.

Meeting 1, January 25: Read to chapter "In Media Res"

Meeting 2, February 1: Read chapter "In Media Res" to the end. Author Devi Laskar will join us for the discussion! 

Available in print, OverDrive e-book, and hoopla e-book and streaming e-audiobook.
