"Chekhovian... Deshpande's story of a woman who loses a daughter is linked to the politics of India and its tradition of patriarchy." --Baltimore Sun "Veteran Indian writer Shashi Deshpande lays out the common threads of female experience." --Kirkus Reviews "Haunted by fears, secrets, and deep grief... Tremendously sympathetic." --Washington Post "The river of prose travels and you are borne along with it, effortlessly, slowly. Until you realize that you are not moving towards any particular plot-destination; you are simply traveling with a splendid writer." --Ashok Banker, Femina (India)
