Praise for A Matter of Marriage
(Previously published as Cat & Fiddle)
“A big-hearted, clamorous comedy of East-meets-West…This jet-fueled melodrama crashes from one unprecedented crisis to the next, taking in desperate family secrets, betrayals, misunderstandings, walled-up mysteries, and delicious coincidence.”—The Sydney Herald
“Occasionally you love a book so much that it’s difficult to close the door on its world. [A Matter of Marriage]—with its warm, evocative, and hysterically funny story—is such a book. A whiff of Pride and Prejudice is brilliantly mixed in with colorful layers of Indian culture.”—Good Reading Magazine
“This is a big, fat, satisfying read, which will appeal to fans of books featuring intricate plots, family webs, rollicking love stories, multiculturalism (particularly with a sub-continental theme), and clashes between tradition and modernity, religion and culture. I adored this sprawling, funny novel. This is highly recommended late-summer reading.”—Bookseller & Publisher (Starred Review)
“Lesley Jørgensen explores [her characters’] lives with exquisite sensitivity and delicious irony…[Her] benevolent storytelling…has a whimsical surface on which the most commonplace happenings are greeted with something like wonder…A remarkable accomplishment.”—The Saturday Age
“Jørgensen steps so adroitly in and out of the heads of these wonderful characters that it’s as if she’s at your shoulder, the perfect traveling companion on the novel’s journey: chatty, warm, compassionate, and funny. An exuberant debut, bubbling with energy and insight.”—Cate Kennedy, Author of Like a House on Fire
