A charming yet honest memoir of one Upper West side housewife who finds herself saying good-bye to Starbucks and all her notions of "home" when she and her husband are outsourced to Hyderabad. Jenny Feldon imagined life in India as a glitzy yoga whirlwind. Instead she found buffalo-related traffic jams. Jenny struggled to fight the depression, bitterness, and anger as her sense of self and her marriage began to unravel. And it was all India's fault, wasn't it? Equally frustrating, revealing, and amusing, this is the true story of an accidental housewife trapped in the third world.

Jenny Feldon paints a very vivid and colorful picture of her experiences in India. As someone who has travelled to India, I can definitely relate to some of her experiences - getting accosted by beggars, getting your laundry back mishappen and stretched. Her stories had me laughing out loud at times but I did feel that she should have done her research on the country before going there so it wouldn't be so much of a shock. So for anyone who is contemplating travell to India, read this book and be prepared.
