In these seven stunning stories, the author explores the fractured experience of living between worlds, India and Canada. We meet a swimming instructor determined to reenact John Cheever's iconic short story "The Swimmer" in the pools of Mumbai; a famous Indian chef who breaks down on a New York talk show; a gangster's wife who believes a penguin at the Mumbai zoo is the reincarnation of her lost child; an illegal immigrant in Vancouver who is drawn into a fateful game of cricket; and a kindly sweets-maker whose hope for a new life in Canada leads to a terrible choice. The book starts and ends with a gorgeous, emotionally raw "translation" to the page of the author's own experience as an immigrant, blurring the line between fiction and fact.
