Praise

Praise for Motherland
 
*An Alex Award Winner*
 
“For all its tenderness and warmth, Vineeta Vijayaraghavan’s first novel, Motherland, has a gutsy air of daring about it. Rather than trying to distinguish itself from the well-worn coming-of-age genre, Motherland places itself so squarely within the tradition that it winds up being something of a revelation . . . Motherland has abundant charm. It teems with sumptuous, loving details of everyday life.”
The New York Times
 
the novel shines in its development of Maya’s clear-eyed and believable voice and in its description of the everyday moments of cultural negotiation that the traveler must perform.”
Chicago Tribune
 
“Vijayaraghavan paints a loving portrait of Indian customs and characters.”
Kirkus Reviews
