    In a crumbling, isolated house at the foot of Mount Kanchenjunga lives an embittered old judge. He only wants to retire in peace, but then his orphaned granddaughter, Sai, arrives on his doorstep. The judge's chatty cook watches over her, but his thoughts are mostly with his son, Biju, who is hop-scotching from one New York restaurant job to another. A novel of depth and emotion, Desai's second, long-awaited novel fulfills the grand promise established by her first.

    Bob says: "Gorgeous prose but grim"
    "achingly engaging"

    Would you consider the audio edition of The Inheritance of Loss to be better than the print version?

    yes


    What does Meera Simhan bring to the story that you wouldn’t experience if you just read the book?

    Meera Simhan's beautiful diction and versatile portrayal of all the characters left me feeling that I knew them.


    Any additional comments?

    This was a beautifully told story that gives the reader an intimate and detailed picture of life in India. Meera Simhan's reading was enchanting!
