A journey into shifting memories
I would be lying if I said my mother’s misery has never given me pleasure.”
I would be lying if I said my mother's misery has never given me pleasure."
"I suffered at her hands as a child, and any pain she subsequently endured appeared to me to be a kind of redemption - a rebalancing of the universe, where the rational order of cause and effect aligned."
"But now, I can't even the tally between us."
Thus, begins the tale of Antara, who has never understood her mother Tara's decision - walking out of her marriage to follow a guru, living on the streets as a beggar, shacking up with an unknown artist, rebelling against society's expectations.
But, when Tara starts losing her memory, Antara searches for a way to make peace with their shared past - a past that haunts them both. Most definitely a book for the thinkers and the sensitive.
