Event Details


 

 Shanthi Sekaran’s literary voice has become louder with the recent publication of her second novel, “Lucky Boy” (after 2009’s “The Prayer Room”).

 

 

It’s the wrenching story of two women – one an impoverished, undocumented immigrant from Mexico, the other a well-off Indian American – and the child they both love and want to possess for very different reasons (Putnam, $27, 480 pages). The story is set in Berkeley, where Sekaran lives.

 

In a starred review, Booklist called it “a deeply compassionate exploration of the insidious ways in which class divides us, and the explosive touch-point of today’s headlines regarding undocumented immigration.”
