Enter to Win: The Windfall

Diksha Basu’s heartfelt debut novel unfolds the story of a family discovering what it means to “make it” in modern India.

For the past thirty years, Mr. and Mrs. Jha’s lives have been defined by cramped spaces, cut corners, gossipy neighbors, and the small dramas of stolen yoga pants and stale marriages. But then Mr. Jha comes into an enormous and unexpected sum of money, and moves his wife from their housing complex in East Delhi to the super-rich side of town, where he becomes eager to fit in as a man of status.

The move sets off a chain of events that rock their neighbors, their marriage, and their son, who is struggling to keep a lid on his romantic dilemmas and slipping grades while in America for business school, and brings unintended consequences, ultimately forcing the Jha family to reckon with what really matters.

    I belonged to a Writer’s Group for 5 years and enjoyed learning about different cultures including one of the writers from India. Reading a portion of her manuscript has stayed with me along with the strong family ties, rituals and obligations with their religious community.
