Divided into three sections, these stories introduce us to the multifaceted challenges faced when Indian Americans are divided between cultures.

It begins with the immigration experience where Chandra contrasts the adversity faced by individuals who have well-established lives with those who have just arrived. The second section is set in rural India, where technology and wealth clash with agriculture and poverty. In the final section newcomers who don't feel they fit into mainstream America return to their native lands to suddenly discover similar feelings of estrangement.

In exploring the meaning of place, he brings to the forefront how "home" can be lost forever.
