Der Verlag über das Buch
The Publisher, Ten Speed Press
Disillusioned with love in the Western world, a well-known American book publisher chooses a wildly unorthodox path: advertising in an Indian newspaper for an arranged marriage. A successful, highly educated Tamil Brahmin woman breaks her own culture's tradition and sends him a letter, launching the book's remarkable correspondence. What begins as an epistolary evaluation of compatibility quickly gives way to a yearlong sharing of hearts and minds. Along the way, they raise as many questions as they answer: How will a strict Brahmin family react to a Jewish man raised in New York? How can two strong, independent, and active people negotiate the contemporary minefields of gender roles, career, parenthood, desire, spirituality, and religion before they ever meet? Deliciously funny and profoundly moving, this intercontinental, intercultural, interfaith love story may just change how you view relationships.
I had intended to read a few pages, but actually read the whole book cover to cover in one sitting. My wife picked up the book an hour later, and did the same thing.
As one who has lived both in India and the United States, I was very eager to see if the horrible cliches that pass for representations of Indian culture would be overcome. Indeed they were. Marriage Made in Heaven is utterly saturated with vibrancy, wit, humor and genuine love. That these two people would allow anyone, let alone the entire reading public of several nations, into their most intimate states of mind, their deepest emotional sharing, is an act of considerable courage. Moreover, the excruciating sharing of hopes, goals, values and dreams that these two engage in over the course of more than a year, explodes the myth and lie about "traditional marriages." Nobody can accuse either party here of being "manipulated" or forced into this marriage. Yet, their sharing of their lives gives the ancient marriage paradigm very strong proof of its idealized purpose.
There isn't an American female who isn't going to connect with this book in a very big way. If you're looking for love, a true love story, this is the real thing.Lesen Sie weiter... ›
I would recommend this to anyone who is thinking about getting married (in a relationship or not), or who is married. It is also beautifully written, with lovely photos and paintings that takes you to the heart of India.
