Product Description

Our Indian Box featured Anita Desai's "Fasting, Feasting", find out what the New York Times had to say: "What distinguishes Desai's novel from countless other depictions of airless and repressive households is the subtle and original way in which she makes us understand how much of our lives is encoded in -- and determined by -- tiny, repetitive, deceptively trivial decisions about what we will and won't eat. These minute quotidian expressions of conflict and concord, preference and identity, are omnipresent but easily ignored, nearly invisible but all-important in their effect on our relations with one another, on our sense of self, on our very survival." - The New York Times
