Tremendously enjoyable story of a young Indian woman growing into her sexuality. Currimbhoy is a skillful writer, and delivers satisfying drama of love affairs, a murder mystery, and uncovering family tragedy without it ever feeling over the top. Underneath all that drama there are wry, subtle observations about gender, family, and race relations in post-colonial India. The story is set in monsoon season, and the frequent descriptions of rain, fog, and generally moody weather were especially enjoyable.
Set in post colonial 1970 India, there is a mystery about the death of the English principal of a schoolf for Indian girls. But, the mystery is second to the alternating viewpoints of various characters. Is what you see and think the truth?
Life at a girls' boarding school in India includes solving the murder mystery of one of the teachers.
