Honor by Thrity Umrigar is about an Indian-American journalist named Smita who returns to India on assignment. The story she’s covering is an emotionally riddled one that utilizes the lives of characters to portray the cultural realities of India, both new and old.
“Umrigar’s latest novel is a transformative tale of privilege, extremism and heartbreak.”
—The New York Times Book Review
“A tender and evocative novel about love, hope, familial devotion, betrayal, and sacrifice.”
