Item description for Paddy Indian by Cauvery Madhavan...
Humorous and thoughtful, this fish-out-of-water tale follows an Indian immigrant in Ireland. The migrant, a young doctor from an extremely wealthy and western medical family from Madras, arrives in Ireland with high hopes. When he joins a Dublin hospital on a fellowship, he discovers that, to many, he is just another "foreign doctor." His stories of acclimation speak of identity, belonging, and the home (and meals) the young man left behind in this insightful but lighthearted novel.
