I love Anita Desai's writing. She completely transports you to the Indian landscape (something her daughter does well, too). Her writing is simple and vivid. This story is all about change-- on a macro as well as a personal level. Leaning to cope with change, changing with the times, etc-- it's all in there. The characters are interesting and relatable. Enjoyable read.
