Praise

“ [This] complex drama of knowing someone by heart is universal…Fans of Jhumpa Lahiri will want to read this first novel.”
Booklist

“A sad story, ending in a misery born from that clash of cultures, but the writing is vivid, full of crackling dialogue, and the plot is completely absorbing…Basran’s book reminds me of the work of the Pulitzer-prize winning novelist, Bengali American writer Jhumpa Lahiri, who also draws the outsider into the world of Indian immigrants to North America, vividly expressing their difficult adaptation… She is clearly on the same path as Lahiri, a writer on the first step to greatness.”
Toronto Star

“Thought-provoking and compelling… Timely and engaging.”
Winnipeg Free Press

“Exceptional.”
The Vancouver Sun

“A tender novel about identity and the search for belonging that is both humorous and heartbreaking. In Meena, Basran has created a feisty, complicated and irrepressible heroine.”
–Thrity Umrigar, author of the bestselling The Space Between Us and The World We Found

“A fascinating story, skilfully written, of a rebellious young woman’s remarkable courage.”
–Jack Hodgins, author of The Master of Happy Endings and Broken Ground

“Basran’s writing is by turns elegant and poetic.”
Quill & Quire
