“The Senator's wife was late. Very late.”
A.X. Ahmad, The Caretaker

“A house in India is not filled with things, is not a display of personal tastes and preferences; it is a stage for life to happen, filled with cooking smells and children and visiting relatives.”
A.X. Ahmad, The Last Taxi Ride: A Ranjit Singh Novel

“The Senator's wife was late. Very late.”
