Manu Kapur, celebrated author of the prize-winning novel Difficult Daughters, has written a seductive story of love, set at a time of political and religious upheaval. Told with sympathy and intelligence, a Married Woman is the story of an artist whose canvas challenges the constraints of middle-class existence.
Astha was brought up properly, as befits a woman, with large supplements of fear.
Astha has everything an educated, middle-class Delhi woman could ask for -children, a dutiful loving husband, and comfortable surroundings.
When she embarks on a powerfully physical relationship with a much younger woman, she risks losing the acquisitions of her conventional marriage.
Beautifully honest, A Married Woman is for anyone who has known life's responsibilities.
