Love Marriage is a book that deals very little with love marriage but on the under current of love trickling through any relationship. Ganeshananthan is an effective story-teller. I found the individual family vignettes enlightening, sometimes humorous and other times profoundly moving. The author uses tamil words judiciously and translates almost immediately. Her characters are well-fleshed out and sympathetic.

Praise for Love Marriage A beautiful first novel. This intricately woven tale, with its universal themes of love and estrangement, presents an exciting new voice in American literature. Ganeshananthan: It took me a long time to understand anything about the origins of the conﬂict. I think that when you’re a kid and your parents tell you a certain set of stories, and parts of those stories are true and maybe also parts of those stories are colored by their perspectives a little–which isn’t to say what my parents told me wasn’t true–but it wasn’t exactly the only truth there was.

Through Yalini, Ganeshananthan introduces us to her extended family with the village at its centre, and its fraying with the onset of violence. The ailing uncle is memorable: Yalini has many reasons to be angry with him, not due to the battlefield violence, but because of emotional scars left behind. Yalini wants to unravel the wounded family's history through its unions.
In this globe-scattered Sri Lankan family, we speak only of two kinds of marriage. Lyrical and innovative, V. Ganeshananthan’s novel brilliantly unfolds how a new generation of war both forms and fractures families. The first is the Arranged Marriage. The second is the Love Marriage. In reality, there is a whole spectrum in between, but most of us spend years running away from the first towards the second. Download an excerpt from Random House.

My teenager bought me the complete Young Wizards series by ne for Christmas. I came across High Wizardry in what must've been the early 90s, in a public library - felt like the book called to me, a bit like Nita in the 1st book. They are just as excellent as I remember.
