Product Details


“This is a tender tale that never shies away from the tension at its root.”ELLE

“Well-Behaved Indian Women
 is a sparkling debut about family, identity, and finding the courage to pursue your own dreams. Saumya Dave is a bright new voice in women’s fiction.”—Emily Giffin, #1 New York Times bestselling author of The Lies That Bind

“Saumya Dave’s wonderful debut is about mothers, daughters, and the rewards of following your own path. Told with warmth, humor, and insight, Well-Behaved Indian Women is a joy from start to finish.”—Laura Dave, international bestselling author of Eight Hundred Grapes 

Well-Behaved Indian Women is a lesson in dreaming passionately, loving deeply, and living authentically.  Dave reminds us that it’s never too late to resurrect an abandoned dream.  This stunning debut is a celebration of women— their loves and loyalties, dreams and disappointments, hopes and heartbreaks.”—Lori Nelson Spielman, New York Times bestselling author

“Saumya Dave’s debut explores the relationships between mothers and daughters and their constant dance between meeting expectations while trying to fulfill self-desires. Nandini and Simran are both conflicted in how to be true to themselves.
