Prerna Picket’s South Asian anthology, My Big, Fat, Desi Wedding, is a genre-bending YA romance collection of linked stories celebrating desi weddings. “All of the stories will warm your heart and are beautifully written. I’m so grateful I get to be a part of such an incredible lineup of authors and honored that they trusted me to edit their stories,” says Prerna.

In this collection that centers hope, love, and family, readers will enjoy eight stories from both award-winning and debut authors. Drama, food, fashion and more drama – these elements are a must-have for any Desi wedding, inclusive of people indigenous to India, Pakistan, Bangladesh, Nepal, and Sri Lanka. In this anthology, authors from various parts of the Desi community share genre-bending stories that explore the lush traditions of their region, translating that universal language through the familiar lens of the ultimate family gathering. Both award-winning and debut authors share stories of broken hearts, rekindled flames, unlikely romances, and one particular auntie who loves to meddle
