The Space Between Us by Thrity Umrigar (2006)


Hardcover in Very Good (VG) condition. Clean and straight.

The author of Bombay TimeIf Today Be Sweet, and The Weight of Heaven, Thrity Umrigar is at adept and compelling in The Space Between Us—vividly capturing the social struggles of modern India in a luminous, addictively readable novel of honor, tradition, class, gender, and family. A portrayal of two woman discovering an emotional rapport as they struggle against the confines of a rigid caste system, Umrigar’s captivating second novel echoes the timeless intensity of Zora Neale Hurston’s Their Eyes Were Watching God, Betty Smith’s A Tree Grows in Brooklyn, and Barbara Kingsolver’s The Poisonwood Bible—a quintessential triumph of modern literary fiction.
