Product description

Review

"If book reviews just cut to the chase, this one would simply read: This is a terrific novel! Read it!" -Ann Harleman, The Boston Globe

"One of the most impressive novels in English of the past year, and I predict you'll read it...with your heart in your chest, inside the narrative, and the narrative inside you." -Alan Cheuse, Chicago Tribune

"[An] extraordinary new novel...lit by a moral intelligence at once fierce and tender." -Pankaj Mishra, front-cover review in The New York Times Book Review

"If God is in the details, Ms. Desai has written a holy book. Page after page, from Harlem to the Himalayas, she captures the terror and exhilaration of being alive in the world." -Gary Shteyngart, author of Absurdistan
