Críticas:


Praise for "The Toss of a Lemon"
"Padma Viswanathan has real talent..." --"New York Times"
"Irreconcilable conflicts between tradition--especially the strict caste rules of Brahmin life-- and the modernizing world lead predictably to alienation and tragedy, but on an epic scale. Viswanathan is especially adept at unobtrusively explaining foreign customs and world views to Westerners while wholly respecting the power and significance they hold for practitioners." --"Publishers Weekly"
"Of a piece with the recent works of Vikram Seth, and reminiscent at times of Garcia Marquex--altogether a pleasure." --"Kirkus"(Starred Review)

""The Ever After of Ashwin Rao" is an intrepid novel, its sadness leavened by a wry humor." --David Bezmozgis, author of "The Betrayers"

Reseña del editor:

From internationally acclaimed New Face of Fiction author Padma Viswanathan, a stunning new work set among families of those who lost loved ones in the 1985 Air India bombing, registering the unexpected reverberations of this tragedy in the lives of its survivors. A book of post-9/11 life, The Ever After demonstrates that violent politics are all-too-often homegrown in North America but ignored at our peril.

In 2004, almost 20 years after the fatal bombing of Air India Flight 182 from Vancouver, two suspects are finally on trial for the crime. Ashwin Rao, an Indian psychologist trained in North America, comes back to do a study of comparative grief,” interviewing people who lost loved one in the attack. What he neglects to mention is that he, too, had family members who died on the plane. Then, to his delight and fear, he becomes embroiled in the lives of one family that remains unable to escape the undertow of the tragedy. As Ashwin finds himself less and less capable of providing the objective advice this particular family seeks, his surprising emotional connection to them pushes him to face his own losses. The Ever After imagines the lasting emotional and political consequences of a real-life act of terror, confronting what we might learn to live with and what we can live without.
