All I remember is that the book was written by an Indian Author and all I remember is this scene where the MC is talking I think to his 2nd wife and he tells her how his first wife died and how his mother was responsible and how he knew about it and didn't do anything..something along those lines and the book was about characters living in Bombay or Delhi.. I think I read it when I was in college so in the year 2000s

Makes me think of Rohinton Mistry, and the only book I've read by him is A Fine Balance. That scene sounds vaguely familiar.

Avantika Pyper | 5 comments That author doesn't sound familiar but will read it and give it a go.. I think the book was based in modern India... Thank you anyhow

Avantika, is still looking for this book:

"Novel by Indian author written in English; MC is talking I think to his 2nd wife and he tells her how his first wife died and how his mother was responsible and how he knew about it and didn't do anything.
Need the name of the book / the author.

Definitely a modern story and the couple featured would have been well off and city based.
would have been set in the 90s if I read it in 2000s, possibility that it's a female author - not sure but kind of similar writing to Chitra Banerjee Divakaruni

Not a lot to go on I'm aware but any ideas would be helpful. Someone a while ago did suggest it was A Fine Balance by Rohinton mistry but it wasn't it."
