Where the Peacocks Sing by Alison Singh Gee

Where Peacocks

Reviewed by Terry Zignego (Library Staff)

I have mixed feelings about this book. I enjoyed the cross-cultural story in the relationship between the author and her Indian husband Ajay. But found myself judging Gee’s obsession with trendy fashion, money and status, although these were most likely symptoms of her glamorous job as a magazine writer. By the end of the memoir, Gee matures emotionally and finds value in family and home. Amazon refers to this book as a “modern-day fairy tale”.
