"Sekaran offers a brilliantly agonizing setup. . . . [An] exceptional novel." —New York Times
“Shanthi Sekaran is a wonderful writer— lyrical and astute, compassionate and fearless— and Lucky Boy is a heartfelt and moving novel that challenges our notions of motherhood and the true meaning of home. A deeply beautiful book.”—Molly Antopol, award-winning author of The Unamericans: Stories
"With wit, empathy and a page-turning plot, the novel stirs ethical questions in the reader that the author rightly refuses to answer. Sekaran has written a tender, artful story of the bravery of loving in the face of certain grief." —San Francisco Chronicle
