about

“This is a story intimately and compassionately told against the sensuous background of everyday life in Bombay.”—Washington Post Book World
 
“Bracingly honest.”
—New York Times Book Review
 
The author of Bombay Time, If Today Be Sweet, and The Weight of Heaven, Thrity Umrigar is as adept and compelling in The Space Between Us—vividly capturing the social struggles of modern India in a luminous, addictively readable novel of honor, tradition, class, gender, and family. A portrayal of two women discovering an emotional rapport as they struggle against the confines of a rigid caste system, Umrigar’s captivating second novel echoes the timeless intensity of Zora Neale Hurston’s Their Eyes Were Watching God, Betty Smith’s A Tree Grows in Brooklyn, and Barbara Kingsolver’s The Poisonwood Bible—a quintessential triumph of modern literary fiction.

Rated 3 out of 5 by from Just ok. I was expecting more from this story. Guess I've been spoiled by A Fine Balance and The Kite Runner. I felt so dissatisfied by the ending.
