Format: Hardcover
Queen of Dreams is a beautifully written gem of a novel. Full of provocative insights, and timely observations on marriage, family, racism, and the immigrant experience, the novel effectively chronicles the lives of a Bengali immigrant family living in California on the eve of September 11th 2001. Elegant is style and tone, the story centers around a woman caught between the real world that is crumbling around her and her mother's infectious and mysterious dream world.
The narrative alternates between Rakhi, who was born in the United States and her mother, Mrs. Gupta, who emigrated from India. Mrs. Gupta has a unique talent - she's a dream teller; she has the ability to translate dreams - be it her own or others. She is driven by the ability to help others through their dreams, having learned the technique from her childhood in India. Without a doubt Rakhi is American but a feeling of belonging to her birth land constantly haunts her. She is married and newly separated from Sonny, a young, carefree disc jockey, and she cares for Jona, their young daughter. One night Sonny left her to fend for herself at a dance party, and she has never forgiven him; she never told her family about it and the incident contributed to their separation.
Rakhi owns The Chai House, a small café, and Belle, her spunky girlfriend helps her run it. Rakhi is also a painter and hopes, one day to be discovered. But when a rival café opens on the opposite side of the street, and her mother dies in a fatal crash, she has to use all the resources at her disposal to save her flailing business, and repair the strained relationship with her daughter.

Have read a few of Chitra's books. This is not the best I have ever read but was quite enjoyable.

Something really different to entertain a confirmed bookaholic like me. Kept me entertained from start to, much too early, finish.
