Product Information

"A rich Chekhovian novel by one of the most gifted of contemporary Indian writers." - "New Yorker"
"Anita Desai has created an entire little civilization here from a fistful of memories, from a patchwork of sickroom dreams and childhood games and fairy tales. Clear Light of Day does what only the very best novels can do; it totally submerges us. It also takes us so deeply into another world that we almost fear we won't be able to climb out again." - Anne Tyler, "New York Times"
"A wonderful novel about silence and music, about the partition of a family as well as a nation." - "New York Times"
