A group of nine are trapped in the visa office at an Indian Consulate after a massive earthquake in an American city. Two visa officers on the verge of an adulterous affair; Jiang, a Chinese–Indian woman in her last years; her gifted teenage granddaughter Lily; an ex-soldier haunted by guilt; Uma, an Indian–American girl bewildered by her parents’ decision to return to Kolkata after twenty years; Tariq, a young Muslim man angry with the new America; and an enraged and bitter elderly white couple. As they wait to be rescued—or to die—they begin to tell each other stories, each recalling ‘one amazing thing’ in their life, sharing things they have never spoken of before.

Their tales are tragic and life-affirming, revealing what it means to be human and the incredible power of storytelling.

Book reviews: 'One Amazing Thing'
TEXT_OF_5_STARS  One Amazing Thing, Monday 24 May, 2010
by kajal sharma
“One Amazing Thing” by Chitra Banerjee Divakaruni is a brilliant novel well thought out and well executed. I found myself captivated by the very first pages. Speaking of the characters, I loved each one of them. I really enjoyed each person’s story as each story was very intimate and gave me the opportunity to really know the characters well. I really loved the final message given by the book i.e. it is the sharing and the telling that sets us free and brings us closer to those we love and cherish.
