More than a novel, it is a psychological study of the love-hate relationship the immigrants have towards their country of adoption.

The colored immigrants from India and other countries - the blackbirds - have a hard time in England. Many are partly rejected, other totally. But the flow continues .. And Anita Desai has treated this theme in this widely acclaimed novel.


Anita Desai touches on a very real problem, a facet of east is east and west is west which has been hitherto little explored in novel form. - The Statesman

Characters glow with life, the scenes are delicately painted and the nuances of changing mood skillfully transmitted. - The Hindu
