Ronica Dhar was a 2006 New York Foundation for the Arts Fellow in Fiction and holds an MFA from the University of Michigan. She lives in New York City.

In Ronica Dhar's powerful debut, her title character, Bijou Roy, is blissfully experiencing the enchantments of first love, her father passes away, leaving her closed off and shaky. Her career and relationship in limbo, she travels to India to scatter his remains--a ritual traditionally performed by a son--in the river that runs through his native city. However, she doesn't find the peace she hoped to find in laying her father to rest. Instead, she meets Naveen, the son of her father’s closest comrade and discovers the intimate details of his political past. Bijou is suddenly swept away in the mysteries of love, grief, and family histories, finding herself caught between two suitors and two countries. Struggling to understand her place in the world, she finds the only way to move forward, is to replace sorrow with hope.
