All books will be literary (non)fiction or something close to that. Follow the links at the bottom of this post to find the other participating blogs.
My Giveaway is the book The Space Between Us by Thrity Umrigar
Poignant, evocative, and unforgettable, The Space Between Us is an intimate portrait of a distant yet familiar world. Set in modern-day India, it is the story of two compelling and achingly real women: Sera Dubash, an upper-middle-class Parsi housewife whose opulent surroundings hide the shame and disappointment of her abusive marriage, and Bhima, a stoic illiterate hardened by a life of despair and loss, who has worked in the Dubash household for more than twenty years. A powerful and perceptive literary masterwork, author Thrity Umrigar's extraordinary novel demonstrates how the lives of the rich and poor are intrinsically connected yet vastly removed from each other, and how the strong bonds of womanhood are eternally opposed by the divisions of class and culture.
If you’ve read The Space Between Us and you are the winner of my giveaway, I’d be happy to send you one of Thrity Umrigar’s other books: The Weight of Heaven; First Darling of the Morning; If Today Be Sweet and Bombay Time.
