Tuotekuvaus

A searing, compulsively readable story of mothers and daughters, memory and madness, love and betrayal'Arresting and fiercely intelligent, disarmingly witty and frank' Sunday Times 'Precisely written, resolutely unsentimental... A compelling book, beautifully written and with startling imagery - emotionally wrenching and poignant in equal measure' The Booker Prize Judges 2020In her youth, Tara was wild. She abandoned her arranged marriage to join an ashram, took a hapless artist for a lover, rebelled against every social expectation of a good Indian woman - all with her young child in tow. Years on, she is an old woman with a fading memory, mixing up her maid's wages and leaving the gas on all night, and her grown-up daughter is faced with the task of caring for a mother who never seemed to care for her. This is a poisoned love story. But not between lovers - between mother and daughter. Sharp as a blade and laced with caustic wit, Burnt Sugar gradually untangles the knot of memory and myth that bind two women together, revealing the truth that lies beneath. 'An unsettling, sinewy debut, startling in its venom and disarming in its humour from the very first sentence' Guardian 'A corrosive, compulsive debut' Daily Telegraph (*****)'Scouringly brilliant, a blazing debut with words that glitter sharp as shards of broken mirror' Buro.
