9780140233360: The Binding Vine

The narrator is the clever, sharp-tongued Urmi, grieving over the death of her baby daughter and rebuffing the care of her mother and friend. Instead, she becomes caught up in the discovery of her long-dead mother-in-law Mira's poetry, written when she was a young woman subjected to rape.

Review:

"Chekhovian... Deshpande's story of a woman who loses a daughter is linked to the politics of India and its tradition of patriarchy." "Baltimore Sun"
"Veteran Indian writer Shashi Deshpande lays out the common threads of female experience." "Kirkus Reviews"
"Haunted by fears, secrets, and deep grief... Tremendously sympathetic." "Washington Post"
"The river of prose travels and you are borne along with it, effortlessly, slowly. Until you realize that you are not moving towards any particular plot-destination; you are simply traveling with a splendid writer." Ashok Banker, "Femina" (India)
