9780140145984: The Dark Holds No Terrors

Years on, Sarita still remembers her mother's bitter words uttered when as a little girl she was unable to save her younger brother from drowning. Now, her mother is dead and Sarita returns to the family home, ostensibly to take care of her father, but in reality to escape the nightmarish brutality her husband inflicts on her every night. In the quiet of her old father's company, Sarita reflects on the events of her life: her stultifying small town childhood, her domineering mother, her marriage to the charismatic young poet Manohar (who turns vicious when he realizes his career is going nowhere and that his wife has overtaken him professionally), her children...As she struggles with her emotions and anxieties, Sarita gradually realizes that there is more to life than dependency on marriage, parents and other such institutions--and she resolves to use her new found truths to make a better life for herself. The Dark Holds No Terrors is a tremendously powerful portrayal of one woman's fight to survive in a world that offers no easy outs. 'An extremely talented story teller with an uncommon way with words.' --Hindustan Times 'Leaves the reader gasping for breath...' --Sunday Standard 'A compelling first novel' --The Book Review 'A very good beginning for this talented story-teller' --Deccan Herald
