A modern novel, where the subconscious reveals itself in a manner funny, and violent. In this strange and haunting novel, Rashmi, a woman and a writer, lives out an obsessive, everyday existence. The landscape that she inhabits and writes about - with its backdrop of marriage and friendship, love and death, perfection and madness - is at once tempestuous, brutal and delicate: yet there exists the symmetry of a beating heart, a dripping tap.
