Elliott Bay Book Company says
Bay Area novelist Shanthi Sekaran makes this visit north to read from and discuss her powerful, discussion-worthy new novel, Lucky Boy (G. P. Putnam's Sons). A book with strong, beautiful prose, it is also one taking on an array of issues and dilemmas from illegal immigration to maternal fertility.

“Ambitious in its scope and triumphant in its bold, insightful observation of the flaws and wonders of human nature, Lucky Boy is a gripping tale about two seemingly distant realities intimately seared together by the inescapable forces of motherhood and survival: that of the celebrated upper-crust Silicon Valley visionary entrepreneurs, and that of the lower-class largely overlooked service workers whose underpaid efforts are the real foundation of the Valley’s success. Shanthi Sekaran has written an elegantly weaved, heart-stopping novel that highlights the helplessness of money over nature and the futility of technology against true love” -Antonio Ruiz-Camacho

“Sekaran is a master of drawing detailed, richly layered characters and relationships; here are the subtly nuanced lines of love and expectation between parents and children; here, too are moments of great depth and insight. A superbly crafted and engrossing novel.” -Kirkus Reviews
