    The worthy winner of this year’s International Booker Prize. In northern India, an eighty-year-old woman slips into a deep depression at the death of her husband, then resurfaces to gain a new lease on life.To her family’s consternation, Ma insists on travelling to Pakistan, simultaneously confronting the unresolved trauma of her teenage experiences of Partition, and re-evaluating what it means to be a mother, a daughter, a woman, a feminist. Rather than respond to tragedy with seriousness, Shree’s playful tone and exuberant wordplay results in a book that is engaging, funny, and utterly original. This big beguiling novel, beautifully translated by Daisy Rockwell is an urgent and timely protest against the destructive impact of borders and boundaries, whether between religions, countries, or genders.
