Reviews

"A wise and moving portrait of an Indian-American family. Saumya Dave renders the Joshi family with such warmth and tenderness -- yet never shies away from the complicated truths. A full, big hearted novel."--Taylor Jenkins Reid, New York Times bestselling author of Daisy Jones & the Six

A bright new voice in women's fiction."--Emily Giffin, New York Times bestselling author of The Lies that Bind

"In her wonderful follow up to Well-Behaved Indian Women, Saumya Dave is quickly becoming a go-to author for complex stories of love, relationships and family, all told with her now trademark humor and heart."--Allison Winn Scotch, bestselling author of Cleo McDougal Regrets Nothing

Dave writes insightful, compelling characters who readers fall in with and root for on their journeys balancing love, family, mental health, careers, and belonging. What a Happy Family is a vivid portrait of family life and I was captivated by the stories of the Joshi clan from the very first page.--Sonya Lalli, author of Serena Singh Flips the Script

"Evocative and nuanced, Saumya Dave's latest novel, What a Happy Family, captures the tenderness of first and second generation immigrant family life, while providing an empathetic portrait of generational trauma and its impact on mental health. I fell in love with the Joshi family, and enjoyed every step of their journey back to each other!"--Uzma Jalaluddin, author of Hana Khan Carries On

Saumya Dave beautifully depicts the weaknesses and strengths of a complex and flawed family, while bringing multiple compelling perspectives to mental health issues.--Jane Igharo, author of Ties That Tether

"The narrative is thoroughly propulsive, and Dave writes intelligently about the universality of shame, disappointment, and living to please others while simultaneously sharing the unique experiences of a first-generation Desi family."--Publishers Weekly

"This contemporary Indian American family drama with a strong dose of psychology will have readers rooting for the characters despite their human shortcomings."--Library Journal
