Sinopse

As a teenage girl, author Sofiya Bryant faced challenging times, and she chronicled those events in The House of Fathepore. Based on Bryants diary entries, this memoir captures her coming-of-age experience as a teenage Indian-American girl and tells how her American upbringing and lifestyle choices clashed with her parents traditional Indian cultural views. In this narrative, she recalls how the problem began when her parents prepared for her next rite of passage: marriage. She discusses how she couldnt understand how her parents could choose a life partner for her when they didnt know her wishes. Her fate was sealed when her parents took her with them on an international flight to their ancestral village in India. Bryant shares she didnt want to marry a stranger as tradition dictated. In the end, both parents and daughter are transformed as they reconsider their ties to tradition. Offering a glimpse through the life experience of Sofiya Bryant, The House of Fathepore addresses the coming of age experience of a multicultural household.
