Chitra Banerjee Divakaruni

Chitra Banerjee Divakaruni’s acclaimed collection of short stories, Arranged Marriage, was followed by an even-more-successful novel, The Mistress of Spices; and last summer by a book of poetry, Leaving Yuba City. All of her works deal with struggles of immigrant Indian women in families and relationships.
