Summary
Written late in Desai's career, these three novellas ruminate on art and memory, illusion and disillusion, and the sharp divide between life's expectations and dreams and its realities. Set in India in the not-too-distant past, the stories' diverse surroundings and dramas frame universal themes, which illuminate the ways in which various aspects of the Indian culture can nourish or suffocate. Overwhelmed by their own lack of purpose, the men and women who populate these tales set out on unexpected journeys that present them with a fresh sense hope and opportunity
Summary
A trio of artful novellas by the award-winning author of The Zigzag Way ruminates on memory, illusion and expectation and is set in India of the recent past, where its protagonists embark on unexpected journeys that offer renewed hope and opportunity
