Great English fiction by Indian authors

Anika Gupta "AnikaG"
The list author says: "Obviously this list reflects my personal tastes. It doesn't include some classics - Vikram Seth's A Suitable Boy comes to mind - because I haven't read them. What ties these books together isn't just that they're by Indian authors but that they talk about being Indian in a unique way. Hope that helps!"
The God of Small Things
The God of Small Things
"The relationship between the twins is intriguing, twisted, and heartbreaking."
The Mistress of Spices: A Novel
The Mistress of Spices: A Novel
"An older woman, a younger man, a magical potion that makes her devastatingly beautiful for a single night...it all turns out less campy than you'd think."
Brick Lane: A Novel
Brick Lane: A Novel
"Set in England, it astutely follows an Indian woman in a bad marriage and a bad neighborhood - she's not your stereotypical successful doctor or your standard stay at home mom."
Interpreter of Maladies
Interpreter of Maladies
"Startling, funny stories far better than her novel.  Also, she won the Pulitzer with this, so it has to be good."
India: An Introduction
India: An Introduction
"This is a copout listing - Singh's crude, entertaining travelogue "Delhi" is the book I was looking for.  Read it if you can find it!"
Difficult Daughters: A Novel
Difficult Daughters: A Novel
"For "difficult daughters" and those who love them...(and for people who aren't sure what that phrase means, exactly...)"
