20130403-124544

Udah tiga bulan hiatus ngeblog, termasuk partisipasi Wishful Wednesday.
Terus terang, gara-gara sakit lama dan kerjaan, semangat baca agak meluntur. Harus dipecut lagi nih supaya rajin baca lagi.

Gara-gara buka Facebook, saya jadi kepengin banget punya novel yang ini:

Description:

From the bestselling author of One Amazing Thing, a sweeping, suspenseful, atmospheric coming-of-age novel about a young woman who leaves India for America on a search that will transform her life.

Beloved by critics and readers, Chitra Banerjee Divakaruni has been hailed by Junot Díaz as a “brilliant storyteller” and by People magazine as a “skilled cartographer of the heart”. Now, Divakaruni returns with her most gripping novel yet.

Orphaned at birth, seventeen-year-old Korobi Roy is the scion of a distinguished Kolkata family and has enjoyed a privileged, sheltered childhood with her adoring grandparents. But she is troubled by the silence that surrounds her parents’ death and clings fiercely to her only inheritance from them: the love note she found hidden in her mother’s book of poetry. Korobi dreams of one day finding a love as powerful as her parents’, and it seems her wish has come true when she meets the charming Rajat, the only son of a high-profile business family.

But shortly after their engagement, a heart attack kills Korobi’s grandfather, revealing serious financial problems and a devastating secret about Korobi’s past. Shattered by this discovery and by her grandparents’ betrayal, Korobi undertakes a courageous search across post 9/11 America to find her true identity. Her dramatic, often startling journey will, ultimately, thrust her into the most difficult decision of her life.

Ciri khas tulisan Chitra Banerjee Divakaruni adalah cerita tentang imigran asal India yang tinggal/pindah ke Amerika Serikat membawa adat-istiadatnya yang kental.

Karena kebanyakan koleksi saya novel terjemahan, maka saya juga berharap buku ini diterjemahkan oleh GPU.

    Aku suka karyanya Divakaruni. Suka gaya penulisannya & materi tulisannya: isu-isu gender, feminisme, budaya, dll. Kalau bukunya baru punya 1 yg judulnya “Arranged Marriage”.
