About this deal

Before the tide of history and politics compelled my family to abandon our homeland and to settle in Australia, a voluminous, yet no less insular island on the other side of the world.

Westridge made a first-rate pinot noir and Flora thought she’d contact Fain, smooth out any remaining bad feelings. They also tackle the idealised images of respectable Welsh women in periodicals and the tragic reality of those who took their own lives as well as showing us the transgressive actions of suffrage rebels. She is the author of the chapbooks Translation (Paper Nautilus, 2019, winner of the 2018 Vella Chapbook Prize), Tropicália (Newfound, forthcoming, winner of the 2020 Newfound Prose Prize) and Amblyopia (forthcoming, Bull City Press - INCH micro-chapbook series). I liked that Swati and Rachel went on to live independently and remained friends, but this is pretty much the only part of the book I enjoyed. Heartfelt, charming, deeply insightful and wise, Mother Land introduces us to two complex women from very different cultures .She is a Puerto Rican Jewish American who lives in Mumbai with her Kolkata-born husband, and her perspective informs her latest novel. His narrative is vivid and gripping, his characters rounded and human in a way “village literature” seldom achieves. When Rachel Meyer, a thirtysomething foodie from New York, agrees to move to Mumbai with her Indian-born husband, Dhruv, she knows some culture shock is inevitable.

I’ve been reading a lot of character driven stories this month and I am getting kind of bored of them. Although there's perhaps a certain irony in places in her portrayal of the various members of the counter-culture groups, she never belittles their belief and their faith in their cause . At least Rachel had been in charge of her life within the walls of her comfortable apartment, but that disappears when Swati takes Rachel and Dhruv’s bedroom and hires a cook behind Rachel’s back.

I loved it when Rachel begins to view India through the prism of her acquaintance Richard whose embraced India.
