Hilarious yet thoughtful, this is a moving novel of friendship, marriage and betrayal, and the difficult choices today's women have to make.

On a winter morning in Leyton in London's East end the locals are confronted with the incongruous sight of a white horse skidding through the sooty snow, carrying what looks like a Christmas tree on its back. It turns out to be a man covered in tinsel, with pearls suspended from a cartoon-size turban on his head. The urbane Deepak, a successful entrepreneur, is on his way to get married.

This book narrates the story of Deepak's bride, the childlike Chila, and her two childhood friends: Sunita, the former activist law student, now an overweight, depressed housewife and mother, and the chic, beautiful Tania, who has rejected marriage in favor of a high powered career in television and life in a trendy London flat with her English boyfriend.
