Exploring the secrets and complexities lying at the heart of family life and relationships, a collection of eight stories includes the title work, about a young mother in a new city whose father tends her garden while hiding a secret love affair, as well as "Hema and Kaushik," "Only Goodness," and "A Choice of Accommodations," among others. Simultaneous.
"Lahiri extends her mastery of the short-story format in a collection that has a novel's thematic cohesion, narrative momentum and depth of character...[an] uncommonly rich collection."
"[In] this splendid volume...Lahiri handles her characters without leaving any fingerprints. She allows them to grow as if unguided, as she were accompanying them rather then training them....Reading her stories is like watching time-lapse nature videos of different plants...breaking through the soil, spreading into bloom or collapsing back to earth."
