Synopses & Reviews

Publisher Comments:

The most stimulating and thought-provoking book on India in a long time..Bumiller has made India new and immediate again.

THE WASHINGTON POST BOOK WORLD

In a chronicle rich in diversity, detail, and empathy, Elisabeth Bumiller illuminates the many women's lives she shared--from wealthy sophisticates in New Delhi, to villagers in the dusty northern plains, to movie stars in Bombay, intellectuals in Calcutta, and health workers in the south--and the contradictions she encountered, during her three and a half years in India as a reporter for THE WASHINGTON POST. In their fascinating, and often tragic stories, Bumiller found a strength even in powerlessness, and a universality that raises questions for women around the world.

From the Trade Paperback edition.
