“The Ghosts That Come Between Us”

Book Review by: – ForeWord CLARION

Bahuguna artfully represents Nargis’s subtle–even calculating–representation of her father, revealing him as a domineering and judgmental presence, while allowing her naive worship of her father to be believable. This layered revelation of character is integral to the energy of the novel, and it brings to light the confusing and complex nature of incestuous relationships. The strength of Nargis’s voice is especially apparent when she dissects other characters, creating mental sketches of the people who surround her, and giving the reader a look into her emotional interior.”

“The Ghosts That Come Between Us is a fascinating story with a moving central character…”
