Frances, Jay, Lali, and Vikram meet as students at UCLA. They came to the United States from India, eager to achieve success and riches for themselves and their children. Frances and Jay marry; the rest separate after graduation. Twenty-five years later, Vikram invites his old friends to his mansion in Newport Beach to celebrate his son's graduation from MIT. As their reunion nears, Frances, Jay, Lali, and Vikram each must confront where life in America has taken them. Has America proved to be the land of their dreams? A novel of cultural contrasts and surprising revelations, The Invitation redefines the meaning of family, friendship, and true success among a generation of immigrants.
