A magnificent novel." - Salman Rushdie, "Observer" <br>"A major attempt to tackle serious themes... extraordinarily rich in incident and detail." - Sebastian Faulks <br>"Anita Desai's most subtle and mature work to date... She retains an unforced and powerful ease in conveying the colour and sounds and sensations of Indian life." - "TLS"
