About this title

Synopsis:

"Mukherjee is a very fine fiction writer, funny, intelligent, versatile and, on occasion, unexpectedly profound."

THE WASHINGTON POST BOOK WORLD

Born in Calcutta, schooled in the states, beautfiul, luminous Tara leaves her American husband behind and journeys back to India. But the place she finds on her return--seething with strikes, riots, and unrest--is vastly different from the place she remembers. In this taut, ironic tale of colliding cultures, Tara seeks to reconcile the old world--that of her father, the redoubtable Bengal Tiger--and the brash new one that is being so violently ushered in.

From the Back Cover:

"Tora, a perfectly realized human character, is apt to live in the memory of the reader."

-- Boston Herald

"Mukherjee writes with beautiful precision ... nearly needlepointing a malevolent world."

-- The Village Voice
