One Little Indian
by Richard Crasta
In India, a land of “snakes, elephants, gurus, and coconuts,” Vijay Prabhu grows up Catholic and confused. The result is an Indian Angela's Ashes, one in which Vijay, redefining his goals, dreams of going to America, the land of milk, honey, and Campbell's Cream of Chicken Soup. "Surprisingly delightful...the unstoppably copious funniness is Shandian."-The Telegraph.
