Inhaltsangabe: Set in India and South Africa, The Wedding joins Ismet Nassin, a clerk of modest prospects from Bombay, and Khateja, a village beauty he marries on the very day he spies her from the window of his train. Matrimony happens fast, love lags behind. Khateja is willful, difficult, and misanthropic?in short, highly desirable. Ismet is in for the battle of his life.
Based upon the story of his grandparents and his own upbringing in Durban, South Africa, Imraan Coovadia has written a brilliantly funny and tender first novel?an alternately poignant and hilarious story about the choices we make and the homes that we build.
The Wedding is a witty and wonderful subcontinental The Taming of the Shrew.
