Product Description


"Baldwin's skill is revealed as she takes up small, ordinary incidents and weaves them into beautiful, interesting stories. The language in her book is simple and effective. With her subtle, incremental touches, her characters become alive and their life situations reveal new aspects of their lives." — Prince George Citizen (2011-06-16)

"Baldwin's prose is precise, nuanced, and sensual. She threads her stories with ravishing glints of colour, that explode against the pallid landscape of Canada." — Toronto Star (2012-05-03)

"Both sweet and sour . . . a fascinating collection, rich in cultural insight." — Edmonton Journal (2012-05-03)

"Each of these superb short stories shuttles between the intricate threads of family, the rich, sturdy fabric of ancient Indian tradition, and the somewhat more ready-to-wear culture of North America." — Georgia Straight (2012-11-30)

"The vicious circle of Indian women attempting to balance traditional roles with views and lifestyles outside their inherited gender and homeland." — National Post (2012-11-30)

From the Inside Flap

Dramatizing the lives of Indian women from 1919 to the present, from India to North America, Shauna Singh Baldwin travels from the intimate sphere of family to the public space of office and university. In this powerful collection, some characters say little but know much. Others, imprisoned by silence, use it with bloody force against their oppressors. A few harness the power of wordlessness to seize freedom.
