The Rules of Arrangement

Listen to a sample

What to expect

Zoya Sahni has a great education, a fulfilling job, and a loving family (for the most part). But she is not the perfect Indian girl. She’s overweight, spunky, and dark-skinned in a world that prizes the slim, obedient, and fair. At twenty-six, she is hurtling toward her expiration date in Mumbai’s arranged marriage super-mart, but when her auntie’s matchmaking radar hones in on the Holy Grail of suitors—just as Zoya gets a dream job offer in New York City—the girl who once accepted her path as almost option-less must now make a choice of a lifetime. Big-hearted and with piercing social commentary, The Rules of Arrangement tells a powerful, irresistibly charming, and oh-so relatable tale of a progressive life that won’t be hemmed in by outdated rules—but not without a few cultural casualties and, of course, an accidental love story along the way.
