Synopses & Reviews
Set in the streets of Greenwich Village, The Splintered Day is a novel about love, betrayal, and the cross-currents of desire. In the rain, a girl weeps against the glass wall of a bar; women crowd around the velvet ropes of a nightclub; and in the morning, a girl lies against her lover's breast.
The stories of a life are cut and colored by those we've heard: the man who betrayed me, the first woman to touch her, the mother who never loved you. But it takes more than one genre to tell the truth of these days and nights, when the only constraints on a girl's pleasure are her own mind and body.
First novel by Indian American poet and novelist which is in the words of Jane DeLynn "Very good, very intelligent, moving...An exciting debut"
