“The writing is clear, nuanced, and gorgeous and never even a word is preachy.... [Everybody’s Son] eloquently and heartbreakingly homes in on America’s problem with race, entitlement, and class, and uncovers all the compromises we get to make — but only if we are lucky enough to be born in the right neighborhood.” (Boston Globe)
“[Umrigar’s] focus has always been on the Indian and Indian American experience, but here she crosses borders to examine tough and timely issues concerning a black family, a white family, and our children today.” (Library Journal)
“[Anton’s] personal journey is a moving one that many fiction readers can appreciate.” (Library Journal)
“Everybody’s Son probes directly into the tender spots of race and privilege in America…With assured prose and deep insight into the human heart, Umrigar explores the moral gray zone of what parents, no matter their race, will do for love.” (Celeste Ng, author of Everything I Never Told You)
“Umrigar hits us in three places at once: the head, the heart... the gut. With clarity of vision, she takes on the story of a neglected black boy…[Anton] is a character for our times as we… try and build bridges across the racial and economic canyons that divide us.” (David Abrams, author of Fobbit and Brave Deeds)
“A potent examination of race and privilege.” (Booklist)
“…[A] powerful exploration of the crucible of privilege and the raw, hard consequence of broken trust…[A] taut, exquisitely moving love story about desire... forgiveness, and the transcendent bond between a parent and child. Umrigar is a gifted storyteller, and her fiction has a revelatory force on the page.” (Dawn Tripp, author of Georgia)

Her characters are distinct personalities that draw readers in easily. And structurally, for a reader who gets distracted...it reels you right back in.
