about this book

Includes a Reading Group Guide in the back of the book.

"Powerfully written.... Debby has not memory of her birth parents. All she knows is that she was born in a remote Indian village, the daughter of a hippie back-packing mother and a mysterious Euro-Asian father, both of whom have disappeared almost without a trace.... Her quest for her biological parents turns into an obsession.... Leave It To Me...shows Mukherjee at the peak of her craft.... Mixing the Greek myth of Electra with the Indian myth of Devi, she sends Devi/Debby careening down on the Bay Area like an elemental force of vengeance."
--San Francisco Chronicle
