9780802142818: The Inheritance of Loss

In a crumbling, isolated house at the foot of Mount Kanchenjunga in the Himalayas lives an embittered judge who wants only to retire in peace, when his orphaned granddaughter, Sai, arrives on his doorstep. The judge’s cook watches over her distractedly, for his thoughts are often on his son, Biju, who is hopscotching from one gritty New York restaurant to another. Kiran Desai’s brilliant novel, published to huge acclaim, is a story of joy and despair. Her characters face numerous choices that majestically illuminate the consequences of colonialism as it collides with the modern world.

Book Description Grove Press, NY, 2006. Soft cover. Book Condition: New. The Inheritance of Loss, so moving, funny, and unflinching, is the best novel I've read about contemporary immigrant life and the ongoing parallel world 'left behind.' And the writing is extraordinary: astonishingly observant and inventive, joyously alive. Really, it's just the sweetest, most delightful new novel I've read in ages! Soft cover in brand new condition. Text block clean and tight. No markings noted. Book has a pictorial cover. Reading Group Guide inside. Bookseller Inventory # 002567
