“Ghose manages to navigate the personal interior landscapes of her character’s lives as well as give shape to a larger political scenario.”

Hindustan Times

“Ghose brings to life dozens of minutely observed characters within a richly described social and political milieu even as she focuses on the journey from loss to self-discovery and fulfilment that her two protagonists make.” 

SHANTA GOKHALE, Sahitya Akademi Award-winning author of ‘Tya Varshi’

“A searing tale of love, loss and longing.”

Outlook magazine

“An incisive portrayal of the abuse and exploitation that thrives as duty, perhaps even attraction, in relationships.”

SHUBHANGI SWARUP, author of ‘Latitudes of Longing’
