Description

An intricate embroidery of a hundred different stories, each with its own appropriate texture, many brilliantly unfinished, until they all end together in the revelatory paean of the conclusion. The author does not just write from within herself, she writes from within her characters’ inner world in a variety of voices that all sound authentic. The poet in Parameswaran also shines through in this novel of guilt and passion.
