The Inheritance of Loss by Kiran Desai
The Inheritance of Loss

exclusive_hotgaurav, February 29, 2008

'Inheritance of Loss', don't know what was on the mind of Kiran Desai while writing it, but I'm sure whatever it was it had a lot to do with the loss. Be it Kalimpong or New York, be it Sai or Bijju, or be it human or animal... The real life as it should be, woven with losses, loss of parents, loss of family, loss of life, loss of love and loss of inheritance of course. Story- would say not fancy but factual- real Bookers type.
