I met my share of bad characters when I was a young woman, and was always somehow able to feel the waves of evil that came off them. You could feel this Bay of Fundy funnel knowing them would sweep you down into. So I got out of their path. Reading this book was like reading about what might have happened had I made alternative choices. An interesting book, written in raw poetic prose.

I like stories by south Asians. Told in first person, this is the story of a young woman who falls in love with a man who deceives her. After his death she discovers how badly she was treated. This debut author provides a voice that brings her character to life with sparse language. I appreciate an author who can portray the grittiness of a situation as well as the love of her city, Delhi, in few words. That is a skilled author.
