"Though storytelling and the mother-daughter relationship are at the core of Tamarind Woman,it is also a splendidly evocative picture of India after independence, of middle-class Indians moving into the void left by the departed British, of the railway colonies in which the Moorthy family lived...and of the teeming life of the many towns in which they were set down. It is a book brimming over with smells, sounds and colors, putting the reader so firmly in place and time that you feel you are there. All in all, a lovely piece of work."--The Washington Post Book World
