The Journey (Bluestreak)by Indira Ganesan
Synopses & Reviews
After a decade in a suburban American world of shopping malls and fast-food restaurants, sisters Renu and Manx return to their childhood home, the island of Pi. A bit of India "torn free to float in the Bay of Bengal," its alien and yet strangely familiar landscape is defined by gardens and hillsides ablaze with surreal foliage, and ceiling fans that circle endlessly in the background. The sisters and their mother have returned because cousin Rajesh, always affectionately known as Renu's twin, has died. His death and their return mark the beginning of a curious journey, leading by unexpected routes toward revelation.
After a decade of living in American suburbia, sisters Renu and Manx return to their childhood home, the mythic island of Pi off the coast of India because their cousin Rajesh has died. His death and their return mark the beginning of a curious journey, towards revelation.
"A symphony for the senses. Its pages team with unforgettable images. . . .A human comedy set against the Hindu cosmology, The Journey manages to be earthy and nadve, droll and sweetly sad, all at the same time." —Mark Dery, The New York Times
