This is an auction for LEAVE IT TO ME by Bharati Mukherjee.

“Uncontrolled violence has a disturbingly prominent place in Mukherjee's new novel, as it does in much of her writing. The main character and narrator, Debby DiMartino, was born in India to a California flower child and a Eurasian serial killer. Having been adopted by an Italian American family in New Jersey, Debby, now in her twenties, begins to investigate her origins. She changes her name to Devi after seeing it on a vanity license plate but never learns that she has taken the name of a Hindu deity. Devi, who manifests her ancient namesake's fierce and destructive nature, also ironically exemplifies the morally shallow, me-centered prototype of the present day. She alone survives the devastation she causes by trying to identify her "bio-parents." A disturbing book; recommended for all libraries.”
