Set in present-day Karnataka, this book explores the intricate relationships within an extended family, encompassing three generations of men and women. At the heart of the novel is eighteen-year-old Aru, struggling to understand her father's 'desertion' and her mother's 'indifference', and in the course of a few turbulent months, forging entirely unexpected relationships that are destined to change the course of her life .Deeply unsettling, yet with moments of warmth and laughter, this is Shashi Deshpande at her poignant best.
