The Inheritance of Loss

The Inheritance of Loss - Kiran Desai Truly lovely novel about people struggling to find their place in a world that roughly shoves them to and fro. Sometimes funny, but with an overarching feeling of deep sadness.

Life wasn't single in its purpose ... or even in its direction.... The simplicity of what she had been taught wouldn't hold. Never again could she think that there was but one narrative and that this narrative belonged only to herself, that she might create her own tiny happiness and live safely within it.
