As the supernatural weaves into the narrative of family life, the Mittals must struggle to come to terms with the secrets that had been locked away behind a mysterious bolted door. Themes of hidden shame, forbidden love and a call for absolute sacrifice enrich this beautifully written novel. Agarwal unfolds the story against an intense portrait of Bombay, delving into the world of the slum-dwellers, prostitutes and hermaphrodites who survive on the peripheries of Indian society.

This is a haunting beautiful novel. You will feel and smell the rain and feel like you are in the middle of Bombay in the middle of Monsoon season.

The only disappointment with this book is that it is the author's first novel and there is nothing else written by her...yet (hopefully!)
