Pressestimmen"A deeply serious, enjoyably lucid book about real terrors and joys, full of sensual and surprising details" Scotland on Sunday "Nair conveys her protagonist's dilemmas with a freshness and charm... Her writing [has] a sharpness and immediacy that lifts it above the commonplace" The Times "Modern India's vivid, sticky beauty is evoked beautifully... Nair's compassion for her characters shines through every carefully chosen word" Sunday Tribune "Anita Nair demonstrates convincingly that she is a writer committed to highlighting the travails and contradictions of women's lives. Her strength lies in bringing alive everyday thoughts, desires and doubts of these six ordinary women" Times Literary Supplement "Nair is a powerful writer... She has created what must be one of the most important feminist novels to come out of South Asia" Daily Telegraph
