Where Shall We Go This Summer - Anita Desai

Where Shall We Go This Summer

Where Shall We Go This Summer is an intense story of a sensitive young wife torn between the desire to abandon the boredom and hypocrisy of her middle class and ostensibly comfortable existence, and the realisation that the bonds that bind her to it cannot easily be broken.

Book Review

'Skilful dramatisation... the narrative is precariously perched between myth and social reality... for the talent itself, as the novel evidences, is exceptional in its innate sensibility and awareness of the craft of fiction.' Times of India
