Girl in White Cotton / Burnt Sugar


Girl in White Cotton / Burnt Sugar

Author: Avni Doshi

A sly and searing debut from an unmissable new voice in literary fiction.

In her youth, Tara abandoned her loveless marriage to join an ashram, endured a brief stint as a beggar (mostly to spite her affluent parents), and spent years chasing after a dishevelled, homeless ‘artist’ – all with her young child in tow. Now she is forgetting things, mixing up her maid’s wages and leaving the gas on all night, and her grown-up daughter is faced with the task of caring for a woman who never cared for her.

Sharp as a blade and laced with caustic wit, Girl in White Cotton / Burnt Sugar is a novel about mothers and daughters, memory and self-mythology, but most of all it is a story of betrayal.
