Where Shall We Go This Summer
Where Shall We Go This Summer
Description

Back of the Book:

Where Shall We Go This Summer is an intense story of a sensitive young wife torn between the desire to abandon the boredom the hypocrisy of her middle class and ostensibly comfortable existence, and the realization that the bound that bind her to it cannot easily be broken.

REVIEW:

'Skilful dramatization …. The narrative is precariously perched between myth and social reality……. For the talent itself, as the novel evidences, is exceptional in its innate sensibility and awareness of the craft of fiction.'

Times of India.

'The author has a deep understanding of human emotions. The character come alive in the novelist's skilled hands.'

Indian Express.

About the Author:

ANITA DESAI (nee Mazumbar) was born in 1937 in Mussorie, India, to a German mother and an Indian father. She grew up in Delhi, speaking English, Hindi and Urdu, and published her first story at the age of nine.

Desai made her debut as a novelist in 1963 with Cry, The Peacock and followed it up with Voices In The City (both in Orient Paperbacks). Honored with numerous awards, Fasting, Feasting is the third of her works to be short listed for Booker Prize. She writes in English saying, 'I first learnt English when I went to school. It was the first language I learned to read and write, so it became my literary language.'

Most of her novels are set in India and completely immersed in Indian life. Prof Alan Lightman of Writing & Humanistic Studies, MIT, comments, 'her novels are distinguished by her focus on the inner life of her character and her concern with people previously marginalized in Indian fiction, primarily women, children and the elderly.'

Testimonials
I received the statue today, and it is beautiful! Worth the wait! Thank you so much, blessings, Kimberly.
Kimberly, USA
I received the Green Tara Thangka described below right on schedule. Thank you a million times for that. My teacher loved it and was extremely moved by it. Although I have seen a lot of Green Tara thangkas, and have looked at other Green Tara Thangkas you offer and found them all to be wonderful, the one I purchased is by far the most beautiful I have ever seen -- or at least it is the one that most speaks to me.
John, USA
Your website store is a really great place to find the most wonderful books and artifacts from beautiful India. I have been traveling to India over the last 4 years and spend 3 months there each time staying with two Bengali families that I have adopted and they have taken me in with love and generosity. I love India. Thanks for doing the business that you do. I am an artist and, well, I got through I think the first 6 pages of the book store on your site and ordered almost 500 dollars in books... I'm in trouble so I don't go there too often.. haha.. Hari Om and Hare Krishna and Jai.. Thanks a lot for doing what you do.. Great !
