The Mango Season, Amulya Malladi. Every young Indian leaving for the US is given the following orders by their parents: Don’t eat cow, don’t go out too much, save your money, & do not marry a foreigner. Priya Rao left India when she was 20 to study & she’s never been back. Now, she has to return & give her family the news: She’s engaged to Nick Collins, a kind, loving American man. A delightful trip into the heart & soul of contemporary India & a woman on the edge of a profound life change.
