Book Description
Her familiar existence disrupted, her husband`s reputation in question and their future as a family in jeopardy, Jaya, a failed writer, si haunted by memories of the past. Difference with her husband, frustrations in their seventeen-year-old marriage, disappointment in her two teenage children, the claustrophia of her childhood - all begin to surface. In her small suburban Bombay flat, Jaya grapples with these and other truths about herself - among them her failure at writing and her fear of anger... Shashi Despande gives us an exceptionally accomplished portrayal of a woman trying to erase a `long silence` begun in childhood and rooted in herself and in the constraints of her life.
