Bombay Sapphire 

Case prof pens jewel of a book about both her native and adopted lands.

After a whirlwind schedule of cross-country book-readings coupled with a trip to India, Thrity Umrigar is showing no signs of slowing as she signs her third novel at Legacy Village today. Set in both Ohio and India, If Today Be Sweet is about an Indian woman who travels to the Midwest to see her son after her husband dies. Umrigar should know the geography: She was born and raised in India before she relocated to Cleveland when she was 21. "It would be an entirely different kind of book if it was set in New York City," she says. "The tensions that come from life being so different here than in Bombay are sharpened by it being set in Ohio and in a suburb." Umrigar signs copies of the book at 7 tonight at Joseph-Beth Booksellers, 24519 Cedar Road in Lyndhurst. Admission is free. Call 216-691-7000 or visit www.josephbeth.com.
