Members Only, by Sameer Pandya, reviewed by Susan Petrone


Raj Bhatt is a happily married Indian-American with the holy trifecta–job, kids, mortgage. He’s happy but hasn’t always felt like he fits in. When he says absolutely the wrong thing to an African American couple applying for membership to the tennis club where he and his family belong, he begins the worst week of his life. In his quest for connection, he’s accused of racism from both left and right. Pandya hits upon issues of identity and profiling without getting heavy handed. Members Only is a fun, easily digestible tale of one man’s search for belonging.
