More About The Space Between Us by Thrity Umrigar
 
 
 
Overview

The national bestselling novel--from the author of Bombay Time, If Today Be Sweet, and The Weight of Heaven--vividly captures the social struggles of modern India in a luminous, addictively readable novel of honor, tradition, class, gender, and family--now available in a limited Olive Edition.

"Umrigar is a skilled storyteller, and her memorable characters will live on for a long time."--Washington Post Book World

Set in modern-day India, The Space Between Us is the story of two compelling and achingly real women: Sera Dubash, an upper-middle-class Parsi housewife whose opulent surroundings hide the shame and disappointment of her abusive marriage, and Bhima, a stoic illiterate hardened by a life of despair and loss, who has worked in the Dubash household for more than twenty years.

A powerful and perceptive literary masterwork, author Thrity Umrigar's extraordinary novel demonstrates how the lives of the rich and poor are intrinsically connected yet vastly removed from each other, and how the strong bonds of womanhood are eternally opposed by the divisions of class and culture.

Poignant, evocative, and unforgettable, The Space Between Us is an intimate portrait of a distant yet familiar world.
