A memoir about what it means to be an immigrant in a foreign country and what makes immigrants return home. From the thrill of being a naive newcomer in America, to proudly taking on US citizenship, to grappling with immigrant parenting challenges, Narayan offers an intense yet humorous insight into the shared dream of the Indian diaspora to return to their homeland.
