Format: Paperback
this is a strange one. the narrative is fragmented, disjointed yet the imagery is real and can be stark. the novel flits from place to place, from continent to continent, but the sensitve handling of language and subject matter by gupta draws you into a young woman's attempts to conform to what society and the people around her seem to expect of her. i would advise anyone interested in novels of beauty and substance, to let themselves become absorbed in this novel and submit to gupta's haunting work.

well.. after reading her other books.. i was very dissapointed with this one.. personally.. i did not like her voice .. the way she adresses the characters.. the book is written in the way as though refering to the reader. very intresting plot... but i got bored with the tone and it was quite confusing.. and difficult to understand.... i'd read her book sin of color.. its fantastic!
