This is a wonderful book, the product of much love, sense and sensibility, and dedication. Its starting point is the Americanization of writer Bharati Mukherjee. Its thesis is that in Mukherjee's case Americanization or, the gradual integration into American society of a student who originated from India, took the form of a "trauma of self-transformation." It was an experience that has also found a lasting expression in Mukherjee's fiction.
