Abstract
Jasmine, the title character and narrator of Bharti Mukherjee's novel, was born in a rural Indian village called Hasnpur. She tells her story as a twenty-four-year-old pregnant widow, living wage in Iowa with her crippled lover, Bud Ripplemeyer. It takes two months in Iowa to relate the most recently developing events. But during that time, Jasmine also relates biographical events that span the aloofness between her Punjabi birth and her American adult life. These past biographical events inform the action set in Iowa. Her odyssey encompasses five separate settings, two murders, a maiming, a suicide, and three love affairs. Throughout the course of the novel, the title character's identity, along with her name, changes and changes again from Jyoti to Jasmine to Jazzy to Jassy to Jase to Jane. Jasmine moves from Hasnpur, Punjab, to Fowlers Key, Florida, to Flushing, New York, to Manhattan, to Baden, Iowa, and finally is off to California as the ends.
