Lakshmi (nicknamed Lucky) and her husband, Krishna, are settled comfortable in a marriage of convenience until Lucky returns home and reconnects with her former friend and first love, Nisha, herself about to enter into an arranged marriage. The debut novel from Sri Lankan-born, Massachusetts-raised author SJ Sindu, whose own parents tried to arrange a marriage for their daughter despite the fact that she had already come out to them, explores the road not taken, as a male friend did propose a similar arrangement to her that she eventually turned down. Marriage of a Thousand Lies is a rare book, written from a queer, South Asian perspective, but a welcome addition to an all-too-small canon.
