Anita Desai offers some good writing in Feasting/Fasting. She does not, however, integrate the two main story lines of the novel into one. Her stories of Uma on the one hand and her young brother Arun in America on the other hand are written independently of the other. Her story telling of the two halves is outstanding. Most modern novelests would have integrated the two halves into some kind of counterpoint.
