Although I could not identify with the main character, Aruna, I quickly became interested in her attempt to find her place in the world, either in Singapore or in London. Farooki's inclusion of a poet as a minor, but very important character gives the novel a depth and richness it might otherwise lack. The universal need for connection to others underpins the plot development, and the love of the poet father for his son is one of the best parts. I recommend this one.
