Tender and funny, Manju Kapurs third novel is an engrossing story of family life across three generations of Delhi shopkeepers.When their traditional business
selling saris
is increasingly sidelined by the new fashion for jeans and stitched salwar kameez, the Banwari Lal family must adapt. But instead of branching out, the sons remain apprenticed to the struggling shop and the daughters are confined to the family home. As envy and suspicion grip parents and children alike, the need for escape
whether through illicit love or in the making of pickles or the search for education
becomes ever stronger.Very human and hugely engaging, Home is a masterful novel of the acts of kindness, compromise and secrecy that lie at the heart of every family.
