Shobha Rao: An Unrestored Woman says
Almost seventy years along the Partition of the Indian subcontinent upon independence from Great Britain continues to carry profound weight and implication for people all over - and will. Shobha Rao visits with a brilliant debut book of linked stories that explore the ramifications and upheaval, An Unrestored Woman (Flatiron).

Co-presented with Hedgebrook

“Stunning and relentless…The stories span more than a century, and Rao never idealizes the time of colonial rule prior to Partition or neglects the later difficulty of being an immigrant in the United States and Britain but instead focuses on how the choices the characters make reverberate for years and across generations. Rao’s language is particularly good at reflecting the interior lives of her characters [who] are meticulously developed within each story.”—Kirkus Reviews.

“What an astonishing collection! Provoking, ferocious, moving, splendid, generous and essential. I seemed to finish the book in a different world than the one in which I began it.” —Kelly Link.
