The Ghosts That Come Between Us

“A stream-of-consciousness prologue opens this novel with questions about life, God and the meaning of everything. It’s a move that places the reader squarely inside Nargis’ fraught existence. Exactly what’s wrong isn’t clear, but it’s obvious she’s suffering mental and physical distress … The path this endearing narrator takes is filled with bumps … Bahuguna writes: “Daddy would call all the shots in the family: How we would be educated, what language we should speak, how we should behave, and how we should think. And also, how we must dream. He would even decide our relationship with God.” It’s a difficult story, but one that is well-told. Nargis is a relatable character and Bahuguna approaches her plight with grace and sympathy … the family drama that ensues is efficiently handled.”

“An insightful, graceful read …”
