S J Sindu will sign

S J Sindu will sign Marriage of a Thousand Lies (Soho, $25.00). Lakshmi, called Lucky, is a lesbian married to a gay Indian man. The child of immigrants from Sri Lanka, Lucky is caught in a double bind: Does she acquiesce or be true to herself? She wants to please her traditional family, especially her mother and grandmother, who want her to live the conventional life of a good brown daughter. Her feelings are further complicated when she learns that her first love, Nisha, is about to get married to someone she doesn't love. When Lucky's grandmother is injured in a fall, Lucky returns to her mother's home to be her grandmother's caretaker, and to confront her present and future. Lucky, an outsider no matter what choices she makes, is pushed to the breaking point. Marriage of a Thousand Lies offers a moving exploration of friendship, family, and love, shot through with humor and loss.
